Killer Combo in L.A., Jason Kidd and Kobe Bryant

‘A lot of prayers and a lot of luck. He and LeBron (James)are two guys, you can design defenses to do a lot of different things, but both of those guys are good enough that on any given night, they can have a 40-point night. For sure, one is capable of having an 80-point night.’ The Lakers are not expected to be a player in a trade for New Jersey’s Jason Kidd, a source said. The Nets, with a 19-26 record, reportedly are shopping Kidd, who is indisputably ready to go, having said, ‘It’s time to move on.’  Bryant, who once pushed for a Bynum-Kidd trade, isn’t going that far anymore. Jackson is thought to be skeptical about bringing in the 34-year-old point guard. Click here for more from the Los Angeles Times.
