the Clips just made a trade (sports.espn.go.com) with the Bobcats to free up some more $$$'s in their futile bid for Kobe

Should be interesting to see what they do with all that cap space when they (hopefully) dont get Kobe.

That's a good question considering that Q doesn't want to come back to the Clips.

According to the Star Ledger (nj.com) - the Nets have been talking to the Clips about Kerry Kittles

    Originally posted by Brad Parks 7/14
    A team executive said the Nets have deals on or near the negotiating table regarding Kerry Kittles with the Clippers and the Cavaliers. Both deals were in a holding pattern last night as those teams attempt to resolve their issues. The Clippers are hoping to woo Kobe Bryant, which would render their need for Kittles moot. The Cavs -- who could send a pair of Jersey guys, Dajuan Wagner and Eric Williams -- are trying to sort out their Carlos Boozer fiasco.

    The Nets are eager to move Kittles' $9.8 million salary and are hoping that because Kittles is in the final year of his deal, a team looking to clear cap space next summer would want him. Thorn declined comment.

I personally think it would be funny as hell if it turns out the Lakers fired Phil Jackson and traded Shaq to appease Kobe's massive ego, only to have Kobe pack up his stuff and move down the hallway to the Clippers' locker room.

It would certainly give the Clippers instant legitimacy. Maybe they'll get the same kinda facilities that the Lakers have now. Certainly they'd make the playoffs, and be on national television a lot more. I've got a soft spot in my heart for the perennial-underdog Clippers, and would like to see them succeed. So go ahead, Kobe, make the move!

[stands on a soapbox...]

By the way... I live in Indianapolis, and I'm looking out to the west right now. I can see Kobe Bryant's head all the way from here, and I don't have to use binoculars or anything.

Any guy who can win three championships with one of the greatest coaches in NBA history and the most dominant superstar in today's sports world and then say “Screw 'em, I want 'em out, because I want to lead this team, and if you want me, you get rid of them,” isn't just contemptible. Because for me to call him contemptible doesn't quite describe how much I don't like Kobe.

If Kobe hadn't had Shaq and hadn't had Phil, he would not be in a position to demand a maximum contract from his team. He wouldn't be in a position to decide the fate of two franchises, he wouldn't have won three championships, and he wouldn't be one of the most recognizable faces in sports.

If Kobe does stay with the Lakers, it won't be long before he realizes, “Oh, shit. Back when Shaq was around, he could kick it out to me for three-pointers, and the opposition knew they couldn't key on me either, because I'd just throw it into him for a dunk. What the hell am I gonna do now that I'm the only guy on the team who can be considered, by any stretch of the imagination, dominant?”

I hope you enjoyed your championship success when you had it, Kobe. Because it's over.

Kobe would fit nicely with a guy like Elton Brand. Plus it's his chance to take a franchise that's never done anything and make them do something. Where the Lakers are already a great franchise and him staying and them losing would really hurt his credibility.

By the way, Q is gone to the Suns who are building themselves an interesting club. Add Q with the addition of Steve Nash plus what they already have and you have the small Suns from the mid 90's again. I still don't think small wins in the end, but it makes for interesting matchups.

The Clips clear cap space to sign a bunch of players who don't want to play there... Poor Clippies.
