Default Steven A: If LA doesn't get something done this summer, Kobe will ask to be traded

Said it on ESPN shootaround:

Sources around the league say that Kobe is really furious (more than what he has publicly expressed) at the front office. When he re-signed, he was promised a contender to be built around him.

He wanted B. Davis, but the front office didnt do it. He wanted Boozer, but the front office couldn't get it done. He wanted Artest, didnt happen. He wanted Kidd...didn't happen.

In 05, when management decided to trade his best friend on the team [Caron Butler] for Kwame, the front office didn't even inform Kobe about it until after the trade had been made.

He said that Kobe just wants to be on a contending team - weather that's in LA or someplace else. And with the way things have been going, he wants to win more than he wants to be in LA.

If the front office doesn't get something significant done this summer, look for Kobe to ask to be traded.

----------------------------

I kind of expected this. They really took him for granted and now its on their ass to get something done. From stars wanting to come to LA and them not getting anything done, bad FA signings, misuse of expiring contracts...

Let the trade offers begin.

If Kobe gets traded will your loyalty go to Kobe's new team or will you stay with the Lakers?

Yup. I just saw it too. Butler was Kobe's best friend on the team and that really ticked Kobe off.

I am a Laker fan, but pretty unhappy with the Front Office right now.

I know it wouldn't happen but what if Kobe got traded to the Kings? He still your favorite player then?:)

he should say he'll ask for a trade, otherwise the front office will keep jackin off. its similar to the kg situation you know kg isnt going to leave so theres not as much trying to build a winner now. if KG would have said he would leave minn if they started losing i guarantee the front office would have done a few things different.
