    NO PROBLEM. I honestly dislike Kobe... but I agree Kobe is just one of the problems.

    But I got to say this
    You change your coach from Brown to Magic Mike and never trade Bryant...that is wrong
    You have to give Bryant a change of scenery
    Kobe Bryant is not part of the future. Period.
    The guy turns 35 and is not the defensive presence that Tim Duncan or a Garnett of that same age can provide

    Finally, some valid points. FYI I don't think Kobe's game is flawless, in fact I don't admire so as much as his skills as his intangibles. On your first point, he has a no trade clause. I agree with the rest

    Also, I hope I'm not alone in saying that Howard, for all his defensive values even injured, is severely overrated, and that the Laker front court, whether due to injury or pussification, isn't as advertised

    I don't care if Howard is severely underrated or overrated.
    He relies too much on his athletic abilities, vertical and his reach...
    therefore he'll get those rebounds but in the area of post game I say again and again he has major deficiencies.
    He worked with Hakeem obviously but could not polish his offensive arsenal, he has the potential to score 25+ ppg if he really had that desire.
    Or at an age 27 he isn't that skilled.

    Nash is too old, Kobe will slow down, then the Lakers will be really screwed.
