    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?

    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....

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

    He hasn't gotten around to filing his paperwork.
