Early this week Kobe Bryant created a media firestorm when he suggested to ESPN The Magazine's Ric Bucher that if the Lakers did not bring back Jerry West he would want to be traded. Now Bryant is stating that he was not offering the Lakers an ultimatum over West's return, but rather making a suggestion. As always, we want SportsNation to weigh in on this story.
Will Kobe Bryant be a Laker next season?
Should the Lakers listen to Kobe and bring back Jerry West? Can the Lakers trade the face of the franchise? And if Los Angeles were to trade their superstar who should they ask for in return?
