Kobe Bryant Hopes to Help Retain Dwight Howard and Pau Gasol

With so much uncertainty surrounding the Los Angeles Lakers’ offseason, Kobe Bryant tweets that he’ll get personally involved in the recruitment of Dwight Howard, and try to convince the front-office to keep Pau Gasol in Purple and Gold: “Interesting off season looming.. Will spend time with d12 #stay and talk with the Buss family in hopes that Pau stays as well #my2cents.”

    INTERPRETATION: Horry Jr hopes to align himself with “Exceptionally more talent than the rest of the L” so he can win a chip.

    sounds like this ego is deflating… good thing right?

    Which means Kobe will personally feed Dwight butterscotch treats while telling him he’s a good boy over and over again.

    Personally, he’d have Dwight over CP3, because he needs the ball to be effective. Off-ball Kobe has been absent since 2011, that’s why Pau is not as effective as he was.


    Kobe here is my advice to you: Fire D`Antoni, get Phil back AND defo get Jeanie to get Jim out of the laker organization and hire Magic instead!

    Kobe’s not calling the shots, and Jim is the heir. Really, all they can do is their jobs. There’s no such thing as a mutiny in professional sports.

    whether dh12 stays or leaves is s/t the following:

    doesn’t dh12 want to be in movies?

    doesn’t dh12 want to be in a big market with endorsement opportunities?

    does dh12 want to leave $30Mil on the table?

    will LAL fire Pringles at dh12′s request?

    will LAL bring in jSmitH?

    will LAL build up their perimeter D?

    does dh12 want to venture down to Texas w/ Harden & Mchale?

    imo… HOU = best spot 2 win for him, but LAL has everything else he wants @ this time

    Jim Buss runs the organization dope. Not Kobe.

    “will spend time with d12..??..to make him stay??” I wouldnt need to think twice nor have someone talk to me like a child to play beside kobe in LALA land.
    Kobe: Let ths child go…your better off without him..

    what are you talking about? Kobe+Dwight+Pau doesn’t make them a better team then the whole league….out of the 3 kobe’s the only one that can create his own shot and doesn’t have to rely much on others. Miami???

  • robb

    and…get rid of D’Antoni!

  • rcfcabo

    Well Kobe help them out in keeping the guys take a little pay cut so they have some room and go then go for it you will make back more than you give up so just do it and let’s have a great season and bring home the trophy

    Bro, Jim Buss should not be running the lakers org. My ngga phil jacks always said “Scouting is feeling and seeing the player, to be able to put them in uncomfortable situations and watch them dictate decisions is the true meaning of scouting. NOT STATS”

    I dislike Jim for the Lakers too but come on what can we do? He owns the franchise! Phil, Jeanie and Jim are not in good terms I think.
