What an idiotic rant, but not a surprise given Kobe Bryant's track record as a big baby.

With the Clippers getting more attention and the Lakers falling flat, it was only a matter of time before we were going to hear from him.

"I wish management would come out and either trade [Pau Gasol] or not trade him," said Bryant, who threw a tantrum five years ago in demanding to be traded.

Obviously, superstars should be seen and not heard.

The trading deadline is March 15, and so what is Bryant saying here, that he'd like to see the Lakers at a competitive disadvantage?
