I worked out a scenario w/ the Charlotte Bobcats trading for Kobe Bryant. W/ the big disparity in salaries it's possible b/c the Bobcats have like $10 million in cap space. I don't think it's likely, but the Bobcats could keep some good players, give up 3 players w/ potential (and maybe a draft pick?) and still get Kobe. The Lakers aren't really going to trade him b/c their best bet is to get rid of some of those other contracts (Kwame $8 mil? Odom $12 mil? Radmanovic $5 mil for another 5 years?) and build around one of the best players in the league. Still, I think the Bobcats might get a little more love from Charlotte and beyond if they got Kobe.
