What a season..jesus.

If the recovery lasts till somewhere at the end of next season can they amnesty him and resign him once he's recovered? In 2014 if need be that is.

Amnestied players can't be resigned by the team that cut them and will be open for bidding to the other teams.
Considering it's The G.O.A.T, teams will bid against each other to have his services.

X is right, I blame Andrew. :(

While this has also not been confirmed by the league, it is likely that teams will not be allowed to re-sign or re-acquire (for example, through a trade) their amnestied player for the length of his amnestied contract. For example, if the Magic, as expected, use their amnesty on Gilbert Arenas – with three years left on his contract – he can’t play for the Magic again for three seasons. This rule also existed in the 2005 amnesty provision.


Say it takes the rest of this season & next for him to recover, they could just wait out the contract (the rest of this season & next) and then resign him, right?

Then again a team like the Mavs would sign him for an x amount of money just because they could. Tricky tricky.

I think it's much more likely that the Lakers will amnesty Gasol or MWP.

Btw: One of the most stupid questions on Bryant's injury was whether he would play through this as he did with some of his injuries in the past. :facepalm2:

Well things like that happen, but I'm not sure if letting a 34 year old player who's playing in his seventeenth season go for 40+ mins a per night wasn't that great idea.
D'Antoni could still learn a lot from Pop about how to handle aging the bodies of his players...

yeah i was watching the game live last ngiht and at the time i thought he was just being overdramatic to garner sympathy from the refs. i guess not.

Funny thing is, i think this is their best scenario for keeping dwight. it was widely publicized that dwight wanted his own team and has issues coming to a team where he wasnt the best player and center of attention. next season with kobe out for however long he's out will be dwight's team if he stays.

Wow. The Lakers can't catch a break this season.

There seems to be optimism that he'll be ready by training camp and apparently there were no further complications discovered during the surgery, so Kobe and the Lakers could be looking at a best case scenario.

I don't think he was leaving the Lakers anyways. He likes to be liked too much. Lakers fan base is about the only thing that's left to support him these days despite a lot of them are just Kobe fans and enjoy making mockery out of him. Ofc that is unless he's willing to turn his back on the whole world.

With Kobe most likely out 6-9 months, the focus is on Dwight. Let's see if he can deal with that situation (and the mediocre supporting cast) in LA.

also, kobe still scored after suffering what would be a season ending injury. wrap your mind around THAT!

kobe being kobe, for sure he is gunning to return ASAP. Meaning he will probably be starting to hang around the team come traini g camp.

As for the rest of the Lakers they still have former ROY, former DPOY and a former MVP in the fold. They still could conceivably make a serious dent.

IF they make the playoffs, they'll face either OKC or the Spurs. WIthout Kobe they just lack the firepower in a 7 game series against both teams. Even with Kobe it would have been a tough challenge. Their chances of defeating the Spurs are slim, but still better than the chances of beating OKC in a 7 game series...

"It took me awhile to learn the players," he said. "The last 40 games, we've played to these guys' strengths, and if that's who we have next year, we'll figure out what's best for them; I have no problem with that."


This clown is the head coach of one of the most storied franchises in sports history. It took him a while to learn the players & their strengths.

Might as well just bang my head against a wall and skip the next season all together.

How should he know what the strengths of youngsters like Kobe, Gasol, Jamison, Blake and Nash are?!

You send them down to the D-League and scout their strengths from there.

Bernie I understand, not retaining Chuck though. He was the Brian Shaw of this team. Yay Dan D'Antoni, yay.

Someone already pushed the panic button in LA. Not a great sign for what's coming next season...

Hello there. Quick question. Should I file a lawsuit against my mom for selling my old rollerblades to some random kid thru yard sale? I never gave her a permission!

I am suspecting she bought a flamingo ornament with the money, because I saw one the other day on her yard. Looked fabulous doe.

Happy mother's day.

Kobe Bryant didn't file a lawsuit against her mom.

The lawsuit is from the auction house asking for the right to sell the memorabilia since they already gave Kobe's mom the $450,000 advance.

Understand what you're reading people. Please. :wall: :facepalm2:
