I doubt it.

This would be on the front page of ESPN.com.

Guess I should check though.

I hope this is true. And I hope Shaq will still want a trade.

Then who would the Lakers have? Odom? Grant? Gasol?:laugh:

Since when did Kobe become David Stern?

So let's play a game. You're the Lakers GM, and you're sick of both Kobe and Shaq. You decide to trade them both. What's the most you could get for them?

An S&T to the Grizz could get you Posey, Battier, and Wright. Shaq to the Grizz would net you Odom and Jones. Walton's shown himself to be a nice piece, but he's literally their only piece. So, you could turn nothing into

Wright /
Walton /
Odom / Posey
Jones / Battier
Payton /

Well they're a little thin up front. I'd trade them Pollard for a pick.... :laugh:

That man is done. He ain't coming back.

He hasn't gotten around to filing his paperwork.
