Are you following this Kobe Bryant thing? Is it even a contest?
Kobe wants to be traded, but he wants to finish his career as a Laker.
He wants to be traded to a team that has a chance to win, but any team that trades for him is going to have to give up the players that give them a chance to win. Kobe doesn't want that, and the teams don't want that.
So names are being being bandied about teams are getting involved, and players who would normally not be worried about being traded are wondering just what's in their future. All because Kobe Bryant doens't know whether he wants to finish his career with the Lakers, but can't live with the idea of making millions of dollars playing with the Lakers.
