2007-09-11 14:11:14.0 elo: micki--EXACTLY
hal9000: and i wic=sh they would stop with the annoying "pusssycat dolls" intro
Brian Kamenetzky: I think that's absolutely true. The question is how "not equal value."
JJ: hate the pussycat dolls...
Andrew Kamenetzky: Micki, when it comes to a trade for Kobe (which I think will eventually happen, like it or not), I think it's not a question of "equal value" but "quality"
micki: hal, lol...pussycat dolls...yup, they need a new intro
dp: depends how you define value
Paulie: When you need to cut the cancer out, it does not matter how you live - just that you live. Cut Kobe out of the laker picture.
Brian Kamenetzky: I also think the market for him is going to be much tighter than people might think. It's a lot harder to trade him, and not every team is going to want him, despite how dominant he can be.
Administrator2: Hey guys, sounds like the Kamenetzkys have gotta run-- thank you so much for coming to the chat!
The Fav: Unless Kobe comes out and says he wants to be here forever I want to ship him out for as much as possible rather than watch him leave for nothing in 2 years.
Administrator2: Thank you Andrew and Brian!
dp: thanks k bros
hal9000: thats guys
Andrew Kamenetzky: When you look at the Shaq trade, they originally came out of it with LO and Butler. That's not Shaq, but it's not horrible, either. It was only when they flipped Caron for Kwame that it started looking like they had nothing to show for it
micki: i just hope the lakers get a SOLID player with a few high draft picks in the mix.
Brian Kamenetzky: Thank you guys for stopping by. This was fun.
elo: woohooo.. thanks guys
JJ: awesome, thx
Brian Kamenetzky: We'll do it again.
Andrew Kamenetzky: Thanks everyone. We relaly appreciate it!!!
The Fav: Exactly Andrew
JJ: keep this thing going!
Administrator2: We're hoping to arrange more chats soon-- check back at http://chat.latimes.com for more info
Andrew Kamenetzky: We even REALLY appreciate it, too.
