Can I ask you a question? Why Dose Kobe Bryant, want to be traded? Bryant has everything he asked for with the Lakers. If he wants to go to another team I feel that is his right to. However the Lakers onwer Jerry Buss, and head Coach Phill Jackson, is trying to build the team around Bryant. The Lakers, is going through a rebuilding stage right now, matter fact, they have been rebuilding every since they traded O'neal. Now this is only three years after O'nea was traded to Heat. Now Kobe and Shaq was great together for awhile, however all things that great has to end. Unless they truly can work together and share the spotlight with each other. A.K.A. Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippin, even when Dennis Rodman joined the Bulls, they worked together as a team and shared the gory. That is what made the Bulls of the 90's great.
Even the Lakers of the 80's learned to work together, with Magic and Worthy, and Kerme. The 80's Lakers won 5 world championships together, and they did it with out falling apart.
Now O'neal, has won another tittle and Kobe who is still with the Lakers, is feeling like he needs to go another team to be a champion once more. Kobe I know this, another championship will come to the Lakers again just give it time.
Jackson wants to win one more to, Jackson has 9 tittles as a Head Coach, he wants to brake the record. Right now he is tied with Red Auerback with nine tittles a piece. Kobe I know it hurts to see your exteam mate win another tittle without you. But give it sometime and you and the Lakers can win again. Just give it time for the team to be rebuilt around you. Ok good then.
