LAKERS NEWz & RUMORz

🔸According to the NBA Bulletin twitter page: We finally get some news on Eric Bledsoe. The Suns are reportedly trying to trade him. Possible destinations are the Pistons and Lakers. The Lakers would love Bledsoe at the $12-13 million dollar range. However this year we have zero leverage. 6 Laker players are free agent signings. League rules prevent trading newly signed free agents until December 15th. The Lakers only option is a package with Steve Nash, a first round pick and cash. The Lakers simply may not have enough assets to acquire Bledsoe without giving up Randle.

Kobe Bryant on this week’s Sports Illustrated cover

▪️Excerpts from the article:
🔸One thing’s for certain: Bryant isn’t trying to be a part of a Derek Jeter-like farewell tour whenever he decides to hang up his sneakers.

“If you booed me for 18, 19 years, boo me for the 20th. That’s the game, man,” Bryant said.

The Los Angeles Lakers missed the playoffs for only the sixth time in the franchise’s history in 2013 and are amid a litany of turnover, ushering out Pau Gasol and bringing in Carlos Boozer, Jeremy Lin and first-round draft pick Julius Randle.

As for Bryant? He isn’t going anywhere, especially with a two-year, $48.5 million contract on the books.

SI senior writer Chris Ballard followed Bryant around while the NBA star toured China earlier this summer and Bryant had fun entertaining the mobs of fans that came to see him.

He is venturing into business, forming Kobe, Inc., last year and takes an anecdote from the late Michael Jackson in trying to measure his success. Jackson was determined to have the best selling album all of time and listened to the Bee Gees’ Saturday Night Fever soundtrack, which held the record by the time 1982’s Thriller” came out.

“I f——— love that story,” Bryant said in his unending determination of being the best of all time. Thriller now holds that record.

With five NBA titles, two NBA Finals MVP awards, a regular-season MVP, 16 All-Star selections and being named to the All-NBA first team 11 times, there isn’t more left for Bryant to accomplish.

Or is there? Proving the critics wrong seems to be at the top of the list.

“So when I hear pundits and people talk, saying, ‘Well, he won’t be what he was.’ Know what? You’re right. I won’t be. But just because something evolves, it doesn’t make it any less better than it was before,” Bryant said.

Kobe Bryant ties record as longest tenured player with one NBA franchise

🔸When the NBA season officially has its opening tip, @KobeBryant will break yet another historic league record that may not be rivaled again.(depending how long Tim Duncan plays)
🔸Drafted by the Lakers in 1996, Kobe Bryant will tie Utah Jazz legend John Stockton as the most tenured player with one franchise in NBA history with 19 consecutive seasons.
🔸As things currently sit, Bryant ranks second all-time, tied with Indiana Pacers legend Reggie Miller in terms of tenure. He will tie John Stockton come late October, and pass him come the 2015-16 season. (Via Bryan Rose)
