Kobe wants to be traded - hopefully not to the Suns

New, comments

According to ESPN, Kobe Bryant wants to be traded.  And you know what I say?  You made your bed, now lie in it (or is it lay?).  He's the one who signed the contract with the Lakers.  And no matter what he says, he had to have had a hand in trading Shaq.  Look who the Lakers got for him.  Are you telling me that the Lakers did that on their own accord?  The Lakers are saying Kobe wanted them to trade Shaq.  Kobe is saying the Lakers did it on their own.  I think it's a little bit of both.

Kobe wanted to prove that he could do this on his own.  He couldn't.  And now he wants to leave the Lakers in shambles and move to a better situation.  If Kobe would be an actual teammate as opposed to wanting to have everything revolve around him, I think the Lakers could turn it around.

And finally, I really, really hope the Suns don't even look at Kobe as a possibility.  The Suns have problems with egos as it is.  Can you imagine what it would do to have Mr. Ballhog coming to the Suns?

What do you guys think?
