Phew…at least Kobe is going to stay with the Lakers

Not that it was not a forgone conclusion after Phil Jackson went and Shaq was traded, but now it is official – Kobe Bryant is going to stay with the Lakers.

I know a lot of people fall under the ‘anti Kobe’ and ‘pro Shaq’ category, but hey, as a Lakers fan, it is nice that at least one of the two superstars is going to stay.

Now, Kobe will feel what he had and what he took for granted – those easy passes to Shaq for dunks are not going to exist anymore. Do the Lakers have a center?
