I just read the ESPN rumor page for the NBA where there was mention that Lamar Odom's syle of play doesn't mesh well with Kobe's and that they want All-Star help to go with Kobe. Odom is big, skilled and is a seemingly good person. Maybe this is the move we do with Z-Bo? Could a core of Roy, Aldridge, & Odom be the base of our Championship run?
see article below:
Last Days As A Laker?
Apr 30 - As constructed, they are capable of making the playoffs and stealing a game or two, but nothing more.
As constructed, Kobe Bryant needs some all-star help.
And perhaps the best person to be traded for that help is Lamar Odom, who, because his style clashes with Bryant's, may have more value somewhere else.
And that's a shame, because, as Sunday again proved, no Laker has inspired more. -- Los Angeles Times
