Kobe 9 Elite Low 'Beethoven'. We have a winner. http://t.co/ZzvbchrzF6
Lin: "Im excited to learn from him (Kobe)." Says they have texted each other. Kobe told him they have a lot of work to do
Jeremy Lin: "I've had the privilege to play with a few very good players in Carmelo, James (Harden) and now Kobe..." No mention of Dwight.
Chemistry with Kobe? I had no idea (trade) was coming. "I was stunned....what the Lakers?"
List related to prev tweet: Jameer Nelson, Dirk, Kobe, Duncan, Ginobili, Tony Parker, Wade, Haslem, Varejao, Nick Collison
Davis: Talked to Kobe on the phone...."Its private" about their convo
Ed Davis fun fact: His father Terry Davis played 10 years in the NBA. LAL now has 3 players w/ dads who played pro sports (Kobe, Sacre)
In 2006, Kobe (35.4, 5.3, 4.5), LeBron (31.6, 7 boards, 6.6 assts), D-Wade (27.2, 5.7, 6.7)...and Steve Nash won MVP that season
When Kobe, KD, D. Rose were here, it was during the lockout, the players had an easier time to do what they want. @nba just doing their job.
PLDT got bigger names last time -- Kobe, DRose, Dwight, etc -- because of the lockout. NBA players don't need money that badly right now.
Lets say Kobe makes $10 million a year. What roster do you build with Plan B Free Agents? Bledsoe and Stephenson?
Also, whats not mentioned is how Melo was impressed that the Lakers take care of their stars and didn't ask KB to take major pay-cut.
Don't get the "It's Kobe's fault because he took too much $." Even w/ cap space. LeBron and Melo aren't coming to LA.
