Well, they are in our bracket now, woohoo
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- Kobe Bryant scored 44 points as the Los Angeles Lakers
defeated the Golden State Warriors
117-111 on Wednesday night, earning the fifth seed in the Western Conference.
To follow up on this, I was wondering what happens to KG this summer if LA knocks out Minny (very good chance IMO). Will he:
Take a pay cut, sign an exension and think that the current team is only a few tweaks away from being a contender.
Tell the team he will not resign unless another marquee player he approves of is added either via FA or trade over the summer.
Refuse to sign an extension, and claim he wants to test FA putting Minny in a very tough position.
Inform the team he will not resign, and suggest they look for a trade, a la what Marbury did when he left.
It will not come up because LA is going down in the first round.
Like I said, I was just curious to see people's thoughts, especially since this has come up a lot on various hoops sites already, and with the Timberwolves facing the Lakers in the first round I do not expect the issue to dissapear soon.
