The Los Angeles Lakers Should Send Kobe Bryant to Knicks and Sign LeBron James

There is no debating at this current moment in sports that Kobe Bryant is far above any other current basketball superstar.

Imagine in the early '90s, actually having a discussion about someone at or above Michael Jordan's level. No one would have ever imagined it to be possible.

The Lakers know they have a top notch superstar in Kobe Bryant and he deserves the acknowledgment that he is one of the greatest basketball players of all time.

There comes a time where fans and the organization need to face the facts and know that Kobe Bryant may have only a few good years left in him. While he continues to add on to what is one of the greatest careers ever, LeBron James is just reaching his prime.

That great title fight of LeBron James vs. Kobe Bryant for the NBA Championship is starting to get old and like Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather, we have moved on.

Kobe has proved that he can lead his team and close whatever game or situation is put his way, but the Lakers have a chance to look towards the future and no future is brighter than LeBron James'.

While many started to jump on the "Kobe's done" bandwagon this year, it was obvious that he was hurt and playing with multiple injuries.

Kobe joining up with Amar'e Stoudemire is an amazing situation for the New York Knicks.

We all know how much Kobe loves the spotlight and there is no better place for Kobe than Madison Square Garden.

By sending Kobe and possibly Lamar Odom to the Knicks, LeBron James could come to L.A. and have Gasol and Bynum, a solid core championship team for years to come.

There is no doubt that LeBron James wants to be the greatest basketball player ever and before he even attempts to get to Jordan, he has to pass Kobe.

What better place to try and take out the champ than in his own home?

The NBA thrives on drama—just look at the Boston vs. L.A. serie...
