    Signing a lifetime extension will not give your 6th ring you need to play with the king “LeBron” to tie with MJ rings. We will trade some veterans players since Lakers are full of newbies. We will trade udonis haslem, james jones and jarvis varnado plus future 1st round pick.

    PG: Wade
    SG: Allen
    SF: Bryant
    PF: James
    C: Bosh

    6th man: Battier
    Strong Reserve: Chalmers,Cole,Lewis,Oden,Beasley and Birdman Birdman

  4. Oh yah good for Kobe and the Lakers Organization let’s do this thing and don’t pull a Rose and injure yourself a week back into the season.

  5. Lakers Fans only chance of winning a World Championship is building the Lakers around a young Superstar like Lebron James; Shaq went to Miami and won a World Championship, who will join the Lakers and allow Kobe and the Lakers to win another ring/Championship before he retires!
