I honestly don't know what will happen to the Lakers by the begining of the season but I am stoked to see Kobe play on the US team. His relentless ambition to win will not let Team USA get embarressed like they have in the passed couple of years. With Kobe and Kidd on the same side, there is no stopping them. I am not taking away from the rest of stars that will play with them but these two will light up the other teams. If only Kupcake would have traded for Kidd in the first place, we would have seen this crazy backcourt months ago. Well, let me know what your opinions are on this. Later.
