It’s Kobe’s team and never think otherwise. I am amazed that the late owner of the Los Angeles Lakers, Jerry Buss didn’t leave Bryant the team in his last will and testament. Kobe Bryant has come out and gave the so-called general manager of the Lakers Mitch Kupchak, his  blessing to trade Dwight Howard. Isn’t that nice of Mr. Bryant the real G.M. of the Lakers. I wonder if Howard is packing his bags and getting ready to leave the team. Just a little less than a week ago it was Kupchak who said the Lakers wouldn’t deal Howard before Thursday’s trade deadline. He must have been waiting for permission from his boss, Bryant.

Every time throughout his history with the Lakers Kobe seems to have a problem with another player taking the spotlight off of him. Bryant is one hell of a great basketball player but he does have a problem being a good teammate to others. He pulled the same kind of crap with the Lakers when Shaq was front and center. It is a good thing that LeBron James never ended up in a Lakers uniform. Bryant might have had to hire a hit man to deal with that situation. It is going to be interesting to see if Kupchak takes Bryant’s blessing a deals Howard in the next day and a half.

            were you the one raped by him? you must be since you are so sure. Oh wait the cops dropped the charges cause she kept changing her story..yeah you’re a real fighter against rape so you single him out. Why don’t you find a way to really help victims and not just bash one of the world greatest athletes.

    So where does kobe actually say ” it doesn’t matter if they they trade dwight”. Cause i read the real artilce and its clear he was referring to any moves the team was making. You’re just interpreting it the way you want. i have seen all the other articles you write about kobe. obviously you just don’t like him so why would anyone take your biased opinion as a fact. Leave the real journalism to the real writters.

    ” He pulled the same kind of crap with the Lakers when Shaq was front and center” You don’t know a thing, The late Jerry Buss shipped Shaq out cause shaq thought he was untouchable.. Yeah he’s a terrible teammate thats why guys, fisher, gasol, odom & nash all wanted to play alongside him.

      This is the original artical from Yahoo sports after the All-Star game.
      “The Lakers are halfway through a disastrous 2012-2013 NBA season and would need to go on an incredible run to make any noise in the Western Conference.

      At this point everyone is aware of Dwight Howard’s unhappiness playing in Los Angeles. GM Mitch Kupchak has made it known that the team won’t trade Howard, but you never know.

      One thing is for sure, star guard Kobe Bryant really doesn’t care at this point. According to the New York Post, Bryant was asked by Yahoo Sports about the possibility of the Lakers trading Howard.

      Bryant was reportedly totally indifferent to the situation, and in Bryant’s eyes, “it really doesn’t matter if they trade him or not.”

      “I don’t know what they are going to do,” Bryant told Yahoo! Sports following the West’s 143-138 win. ”But at this point, it doesn’t matter. What matters to us is what we do on Wednesday [against the Celtics] and go from there.

      “That’s the most important thing. That’s my message to the team is that you can’t worry about the future, you can’t worry about the past, you just have to focus on the present and we really have to maximize every single game.”

        ouch LD.. I think you really had gone overboard on this. I also dont think Kobe is the real problem on this team. Me and my friends always talk about the lakers current status and initailly blame them on Kobe. But sure thing though is Nash aint happy anymore and Kobe is the only consistent player on the team (with earl Clark) except for that 1 for 8 shooting. He had done everything he could by changing his game to a general instead of the sniper. If you would see, everyplayer have to deal with everything, and I dont think DH has not been up to even his 50% the whole season. Playing soft… Not a typical laker star.. NASH, of all people NASH even confronted him on court….

          Hey the lakers may have screwed up by taking a guy that just had his back surgery. You just never know with a back injury.
