In the line of Mr Bryant's demand to be traded, ignoring the subsequent back-pedaling and the overall slim chances of it to happen anyways, comes this part of Bill Simmons Basketball Blog:
(C) Sadly, tragically, there's no conceivable scenario in which the Knicks can offer a decent enough package for Kobe. They're not getting him for a Jamal Crawford-David Lee-Nate Robinson-Quentin Richardson package, and they're not getting the Lakers to bite on Stephon Marbury unless they can frame Kupchak for murder and blackmail him with the photos between now and June 30. It's not happening. Sorry, Knicks fans.
Am I really sorry? Should anyone be? Is that package palatable? What would you give up for Mamba?
Give your thoughts!
Giving up the whole roster not playing the center position, retaining Francis and Starbury... no friggin' way. It would cost the Knicks the energy players, which I like to see, and see them getting better.
