After watching Kobe destroy the Suns again, my thoughts weren't "wow we've to get this guy". It was, "Kobe is not going anywhere". Whatever friction Kobe may have with Shaq, it is not going to be enough to make him give up being on certain championship contender and $50 million to boot. Against the Suns, Kobe showed the kind of "team play" that Shaq was asking for and still scored 40 points. I'm not going to hedge. As long as he does not go to prison, Kobe will be a Laker next year. 100% done deal. Oh, he will shop around and let everybody ooh and ah over him, but Kobe is not leaving the Lakers.
