This.


It will never happen. He wants to beat kobe, makes no point joining him at all. I am sure he wants as many rings as Jordan but if he has kobe on that team, it wont have the same satisfaction.

Like mentioned before, no way that Kobe and Lebron will play in the same team.

About Melo, i highly doubt he's gonna leave his hometown team for joining the Lakers.

Anyway will Kobe accept less money for the next contract? I read somewhere that isn't planning to but i find it very odd. Any news about this?

Cause if he ll get a new contract close to 20m per year the Lakers are pretty screwed.

LeBron's not giving Kobe free rings. It's not happening.

Can we wait and see how Kobe does before we post all this? For all we know he can be averaging 12ppg on 31% or 25ppg on 55%. Lets see this old cat play some offense and defense before we start talking about 'superstars' playing together. At this point, after an achilles tear at that age, I am not expecting a lot but will tune in to watch never the less :)

Even if that were true (which it is not), it wouldn't actually be a very good team. You can't have three ballhogging wing players on one team.

It can work if Kobe and Melo become spot up shooters for LeBron, which they can be. Then they can rest LeBron, and let the other two take turns in whatever way they want. It can work, but no way LeBron gives Kobe more rings.

I think the Lakers can spend their money better. Lebron would be a great addition, but Lebron and Melo? It would be better to get more size or a Derrik Rose. Imagine Kobe, Lebron, and Melo playing together. I guess Lebron would have to play power forward. Kobe loves to shoot, just like Melo. I don't know if this would be a good fit. They could have problems with spacing.
