Kobe Ready To Leave L.A.

"I would like to be traded, yeah," Kobe Bryant reportedly told ESPN radio on Wednesday. "Tough as it is to come to that conclusion there's no other alternative." Kobe also suggested that there's nothing the Lakers can do to change his mind. I'm not surprised in the least, so I don't have much of an opinion but, I do believe Kobe is a phenomenal player who deserves the opportunity to reach his fullest potential even if that's not with the Los Angeles Lakers.
