|"I would certainly listen [to trade offers for Kobe]. At any time, I think you have to do that with anybody. It's just part of the game ... You can't keep too many loyalties. You've got to look at it as a business. He looks at it the same way I look at it."
-- Lakers owner Jerry Buss
After reading this quote I think that it is really interesting that owner Jerry Bus
would consider trading his top player. I think he is absolutely crazy. Kobe is considered one of the greatest players of all time, and they would consider trading him. When the Lakers had Magic Johnson was there any talk of trading him? I think not. I am not a big Kobe Fan, but I think that the Lakers have a good young team to work with and need Kobe if they ever want to win another Championship in the next 10 years. I understand that it is business, but what if Jerry Krause would of said that he would listen to trades for Micheal Jordan? I would think the whole league would of put out a proposal to get MJ.
What kind of deal has Jerry Buss listen too? What would you accept as a good offer for a player of Kobe's Caliber?
