Kobe wants out

Kobe Bryant asked to be traded from the Lakers on Wednesday, a day after calling the team's front office "a mess." He said there was nothing the Lakers could do to change his mind. "[The Lakers] obviously want to move in a different direction in terms of rebuilding," Bryant said, adding he could have opted to sign with the Los Angeles Clippers or Chicago Bulls instead. "Three years ago when I was re-signing they should have told me they wanted to rebuild." Asked if he had any preference for a trade destination, he said "At this point I'll go play on Pluto."

Later on Wednesday, Kobe backed off these trade demands; probably after they threatened to deal him to Denver. And I don’t blame him for not wanting to go back to Colorado. Sure the skiing is great but Kobe knows all too well how difficult it is to rape score with Colorado girls.
