It's a sad fact, but I think the Lakers need to accept that Kobe will never be happy in LA. Unless some of these guys have expiring contracts that they can use to sign a big free agent, they just don't have the pieces to move guys around and create a contender with Kobe on the payroll.
They should just bite the bullet and trade him for the best possible deal they can get, hopefully a crapload of draft choices in a three way trade, and try to build from that.
They had a successful rebuild in the early 90's that led to 3 rings in the early 2000's.
