Breaking News: Kobe Bryant has demanded a trade from Los Angeles.
No, there's no chance he'll be in a Cavs uniform next year. Still, it's times like these when I wish Isiah Thomas were running the Lake Show. Can you imagine the conversation?
Danny Ferry: Hey, Zeke, we'd like to trade for Kobe. We think he'd be great with LeBron. What about Kobe for Larry Hughes, straight up?
Zeke: I don't know, I'm not sold on Hughes, he's kind of injury prone . . .
Danny Ferry: Fine, fine, you drive a hard bargain, but I'll throw in Damon Jones.
UPDATE: More coverage of the Kobe situation here, complete with potential trade suitors (TrueHoop).
