If you were Lakers GM Kupchak would you accept a straight trade, Blake Griffin (b 1989) for Kobe Bryant (b 1978) at the end of this season (won't interrupt this season)? Kobe goes to Clippers, Blake goes to Lakers.

Why is this even brought up? Just accept the fact the celtics handed your a55 to you yesterday.

Paul Pierce 4 MVP!

Which is exactly why Donald Sterling is stupid enough to make this trade if it were proposed. The Lakers are not adverse to trading iconic stars(See O'Neal, Shaquille) and Sterling will do whatever it makes to make money at the expense of the team

I'd include a poll next time so you at least force the issue a little.

Yes, I'd say do it.....

I think I would too because sure, Kobe has a couple of really good years left then maybe a couple of OK years. Yes, it could risk a championship next year. Yes, Blake is a forward and who would be the guard to replace Kobe...

but, Griffin is really special, this guy has it. A team can form around him. He'd be a good nucleus with Bynum and Gasol and some new young quicker players.

In Hollywood they say you are only as good as your last movie...

In the cut throat world of sports, you can become yesterday's news pretty quick. It's a young man's game.

In order to get sufficient playing time without blowing that leftover core up you'd have to move Gasol to SF as he is a better shooter(not really adequate, though) and move Odom to guard(he has the ball handling ability for it). Conversely, you can give up on a Bynum altogether and trade him for a guard and run Gasol and Griffin through center.

Realistically, Griffin doesn't fit because of the logjam of contracts and players at center and forward. He won't get his minutes, or someone else making big bucks won't get theirs.

I'd trade Kobe for Griffin, though. I wouldn't trade Griffin for Kobe.
