We're gonna just man up and beg the Lakers here: Please, please, trade Kobe Bryant. We don't care where. Chicago? Phoenix? Dallas? We don't know, and we don't care. Just get it done, and fast.

Honestly, we really thought we were done with all this. Forum Blue And Gold points out that Jerry Buss' comments were mostly political in nature, and meant more to stamp down discussion than fire it back up. But God, we can't take it anymore! We're not checking Kobe's Web site, we're not reading the LA Times โ€” except for Plaschke of course! โ€” and we're not going to bow to our Chick Hearn memorial. Just get it over with, and please, stop talking about it. We can't take it. Until Kobe is traded or arrested again, don't wake us up.
