Magic: Kobe saga needs to end one way or another

http://sports.yahoo.com/n...=nba,51949

Magic Johnson criticized management for its handling of the Kobe Bryant situation and blasted Bryant for his actions and words. Johnson said the Bryant saga needs to end.

"Watching the players and looking at their body language, they are going to have to make a decision about Kobe in the next week or two. It's got to come to a head," Johnson said. "You've either got to trade him or come out and say you're going to keep him. Even Kobe needs it. He missed nine free throws [Tuesday]. It's on his mind too. I don't think he's going to get traded. I think they'll try to keep him and make something happen in terms of trying to improve the team."

"If Kobe would have been smart, he would have mended those fences with Shaquille, let Shaquille be 'The Man' and we wouldn't be in this position," Johnson said. "Now, after four years later, he understands that he can't do it by himself. Now he's blaming the organization, and some of that blame should be on him and some on the organization.''

It' really is amazing that they win three championships and it's not enough. They let personal differences keep them from making history.

I'm sure Dennis Rodman & Michael Jordan weren't best friends either. Neither were Kareem & Magic.

It shows what college might possibly have done for Kobe. His game is great, but his head is fucked up.

Kobe is a more talented player that Shaq IMO. Shaq is a one trick pony. Kobe has many tricks. I know Kobe can act like a real asshole at times, but I'd love to see him playing for my team (the Raptors). nod

.....a one-trick pony with 4 NBA championship rings and a gold metal, not to mention he is also one of the 50 greatest NBA players of all-times. cool

For the time being, Kobe have only 3 rings and no medals.
