Honestly, I am getting sick and tired of the Kobe Bryant Show. If he was looking for attention, well he got it. I mean seriously. First he wants out. Embarrasses his franchise, coach and teammates to some guy with a camera in a parking lot. Then he's apologetic, realizing his mistake. Then all of a sudden, he wants out, because he feels like he's not getting enough help. Now, he talked to his GM and actually hasn't even thought about a trade in a long time. What's next? He's joining the circus? I mean the Lakers should trade him because he's done enough damage to a Franchise in rebuilding mode. Kobe always got what he wanted. He wanted Shaq out. Shaq was out. He wanted Phil Jackson out. The Lakers fired him like he was a rookie coach. They stood by him every step of the way in his trial. In fact, he went to the trial in their airplane. This is how he repays their loyalty? Personally, I'm sick and tired of the Kobe Bryant Show, but Kobe seems to feel that the show must go on.

I agree with Hal...Kobe is not what a lot of people portray him to be. Sure I think him and Shaq should have been men about the situation and found a way to play together. But I think they had equal responsibility in it. I don't think Phil Jackson was out because of Kobe. The bottom line Kobe needs help. Even when Shaq was there I think the Lakers needed somebody else in there to help.
