After reading the numbers on Kobe's contract, it got me thinking might Buss be wise throwing Kobe under the bus through amenesty in order to rebuild around Bynum? This assumes that no one wants to trade for his contract. Personally, I think it might make the most financial sense to the Lakers. Trade Gasol for a future star(draft pick + scraps) and then throw Kobe to the curb if he gets no takers. Besides this discussion gives us sometbody woes besides the Blazers woes to discuss.
