A small fine is in order, at the least. He'll be lucky if he doesn't get jumped in the lockerroom.
Kobe already said today he prefers to sit out but will follow whatever the league tells him

If he prefers to sit out, just do it and stop pussyfooting around so a replacement can be chosen. Thats what I mean by he's a diick.

He is, he has asked OUT of the game, but he still has to do what the league tells him or be punished. Since he didn't miss any games preceeding the ASG, it's up to Stern whether or not he'd allow him to sit out, because they have a rule where if Stern wants you to participate in ASW events, you have to. This is to avoid players just skipping the weekend because they don't want to go, a problem they've run into before with veterans who get selected to the game but don't want to go.

Are people really this f*cking stupid?

If Bryant pulls out of the ASG, he is automatically suspended for the first game after the break. Which is against the Suns, and gives the Lakers the opportunity to take the lead in the Pacific Division and to secure the tiebreaker over Phoenix.

So yeah, he's being selfish, not sacrificing an all-important game for his team so that some other kid can shine in the All-Star Game.

There should be an emoticon for "wanker" on this site.

Edit: Whoops, just realized that the Lakers play the Hawks before the Suns. Whatever. The possible one-gamee suspension is still the reason why Bryant has to play on Sunday.

Kobe has been with the same franchise longer than any current player in the league.

Allow me to END this thread.

This is the rule:

If a player plays the last game before the ASG and is set to play the first game after the ASG, then he must play the ASG or he is suspended for one game.

Get it? Kobe played against minnesota and he won't be sitting out the first post-ASG against Atlanta. Therefore, he has no choice but to show up in New Orleans.

However, the Lakers are appealing to the league.

Now, this thread is an honest mistake because if not for the rule, the allegations by kizzle are not exactly far out and unreasonable. If Kobe had a choice, he should've pulled out. But he doesn't.

So let's end this thread.

Cheers.

Now let's get back to thread sex.

What do you think should be done to him? A small fine wouldn't be completely unfair imo.
Dude what are you on? Are you aware he'll be suspended for one game if he does not play? Would you like that?

What can they be appealing? If that's the rule, then that's the rule.

they're asking the league if he can sit out though its doubtful they will be successful. Isn't Byron Scott coaching the West team though? He and Kobe are tight i get the feeling even if Kobe is forced to play he'll get like 10 minutes of PT and then sit his ass on the bench.
