BULLS FANS- YES OR NO ON KOBE?
Today’s Trib is peppered with stories about Kobe Bryant, and whether or not he will becomes a Bull. Mike Downey references a video that virally made its way to most basketball fans–about 6 months ago. But I digress.
With the Bulls drafting Joakim Noah and their continued nagging about Tyrus Thomas, I can now see a Bulls-Lakers deal happening. Sort of. I still don’t think it will happen. If Kobe comes to the Bulls, Ben Gordon–the Jon Garland of Bulls trade rumors–would be a superfluous part of the puzzle, so obviously he’d head west too.
So Thomas and Gordon. What else? I’d say Nocioni. He can be traded, but not right away due to his recent contract signing. Deng? Ha. Hinrich? Not a chance. Thabo? Draft picks? What else do you add? Is there enough to even make the deal when you add up salaries?
Then there’s this matter: do you even want Kobe here?
I don’t really like Kobe. I’m not a fan. But I love to watch him play. In that regard I would like to see him every night. And he probably would come here extremely hungry for another title. I just worry if at some point he would big-time the Bulls with demands, pouting, etc.
But again, we likely won’t see Kobe as a Bull. Right?
