actually, the knicks make A LOT OF SENSE, despite them possibly not having the resources to get kobe.

- kobe always said he would love to play for NY during his opt-out year, he could still live his celebirty life in another big city/market

- kobe, lets remember, said hes not necessarily demanding a title contending team this year IF JERRY WEST CAME BACK, just to know he would have someone who would be aggressive and someone who he could trust in the front office to make big moves.....kobe and isiah are good friends and knows the knicks are ALWAYS trying to be aggressive and field any big deal out there.....

- MAYBE him and phil jackson will go together, since phil has not yet extended his contract for the lakers....isiah would go back to the front office, phil would coach, played for the knicks.....

again, im not saying its true, but those are 3 BIG factors you gotta think about, kobe just may well possibly be talking about NY....also lets not forget jerry west has said today he will "ABSOLUTELY" not return to the lakers....which makes the chances of kobe returning even less.

ur an idiot


nobody wants kwame and those salaries dont match up for the other trade
Yeah I realized the trade w/ Indiana is ~$5 mill short...
But I think you underestimate how badly the Queens want to get rid of Artest. The Lakers dont want the first round pick... If they gave up the 1st round + maybe a 2nd round + Kwame, I think Sacramento would jump on it.

Lakers owner speaks with Bryant, promises to improve team
By JOHN NADEL, AP Sports Writer
May 31, 2007

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Lakers owner Jerry Buss spoke with Kobe Bryant on Thursday and said he told his frustrated superstar he would "pursue every avenue possible" to improve the team.

The conversation took place a day after Bryant asked to be traded, saying among other things he had been misled by Buss nearly three years ago when he re-signed with the Lakers.

"I talked with Kobe this morning and a.ssured him that I share his frustration and, more importantly, I a.ssured him that we will continue to pursue every avenue possible to improve our team with him as the cornerstone," Buss said in a statement. "I told him that we will keep him apprised of our progress and we agreed that we will talk again in the very near future."

Bryant, the NBA scoring champion the past two years, asked the Lakers for a trade Wednesday. He said nothing could change his mind, but he backed off somewhat after speaking with coach Phil Jackson.

"I don't want to go anywhere -- this is my team," Bryant told KLAC radio. "I love it here. I called Phil, man. He and I talked; it was an emotional conversation. But he just said, 'You know what, Kobe? Let us try to figure this thing out."'

Bryant said at that time he hadn't heard from Buss, indicating a conversation could go a long way toward resolving the matter.

Some three hours earlier, in an interview with ESPN radio, Bryant said he wanted to be traded. He added that it was a matter of trust, and he would rather "go play on Pluto" than remain with the Lakers.

Bryant, who turns 29 in August, is owed $88.6 million for the four years he has left on the seven-year, $136.4 million contract he signed July 15, 2004. That was a day after Shaquille O'Neal was traded to the Miami Heat.

Bryant said he felt Buss misled him right before he re-signed by telling him one thing and Jackson something else about the team's goals.

Bryant said he was told the Lakers would immediately try to rejoin the NBA's elite. But he said Jackson told him this week that Buss wasn't bringing him back as coach following the 2003-04 season because the Lakers were committed to reducing payroll and rebuilding long term.

Jackson was out of coaching one season before being rehired by the Lakers, who haven't won a playoff series since Bryant re-signed. Bryant has the right to terminate his contract after the 2008-09 season.
