Lonzo Ball was asked to weigh in on the LeBron James vs. Kobe Bryant debate because of course he was. Not only is this a legitimate question for the Los Angeles Lakers rookie who has openly said he’d love to play with James soon, but it also is a question that’s been dancing around the NBA world more than normal recently since Michael Jordan used reductive logic to pick Bryant over James. Here’s his answer: “My favorite player was LeBron growing up. But he does have a point. Championships do mean a lot. But, uhh, it’s tough. I’m a Laker. I want to go with Kobe. But I’ve been saying LeBron for my whole life, so I’ma go with LeBron.”

If the team came to him with a trade, Gasol would accept it. “If they think it is best, I would do anything for this franchise,” Gasol says. Wallace and other higher-ups are adamant that is unlikely, even as the losses mount. That seems stubborn, and there is almost certainly a scenario — perhaps Conley getting reinjured, or taking longer than expected to return — where Memphis tests the market. But even in that doomsday sequence, the Grizzlies may even prefer to hold their stars out here and there in some selective tankery, nab a high draft pick, and reload for another run at 45-plus wins.
