The trade rumor madness surrounding Kobe Bryant and his Los Angeles Lakers has reached a crescendo. We’re talking Mount Everest in the build up, the fantasy, the rumors.
It’s understandable. The doom and gloom that is the press attention to the Los Angeles Lakers continues to boil over after Kobe Bryant and company keep losing to the elite teams in the NBA like the Boston Celtics and San Antonio Spurs.
Everyone’s calling for change. And, from the legit to the outrageous, it seems like everyone’s got a plan to fix LA, from the so-called experts to the diehard fans to the downright dreamers.
