Default Kobe Was Almost A Piston

Wow, I would've never guessed he would've ended up in Detroit over Chicago back when he demanded that trade.

This team would look much different than it does right now. I wonder who all we would've needed to give up.... Probaby Rip & Chauncey + draft picks.

The following is reportedly the offer that Jerry Buss presented to Kobe. Being that Kobe has that no trade clause he had to sign off on any potential deal.

Detroit radio station WXYT-AM (1270) that the Pistons and Lakers agreed to a swap that would have sent Tayshaun Prince, Richard Hamilton, Amir Johnson and a first-round pick to the Lakers for Bryant.

Something like..

Billups / Stuckey
Bryant / Afflalo
Hayes
McDyess / Maxiell
Wallace

We weren't too far off from beating the Celtics. Maybe if they could have made another trade it would have been enough but the rotation at SF would have been extremely weak.
