Kenny Smith To Kobe Bryant: ‘We Got A Seat For You On TNT’
Kenny Smith To Kobe Bryant: ‘we Got A Seat For You On Tnt’
Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

The end is drawing near for Kobe Bryant with the superstar potentially finishing out his NBA career with the Los Angeles Lakers at the end of the 2015-16 NBA season.

With Bryant’s career possibly coming to an end in April, many have begun to wonder about what may be next for the five-time NBA champion.

One possibility may be to join the NBA on TNT crew with Kenny Smith, Ernie Johnson, Charles Barkley and former Lakers teammate Shaquille O’Neal.

TMZ Sports recently caught up with Smith at LAX airport and lobbied for Bryant to join the crew in April because he believes the Lakers won’t make the playoffs:

We got a seat for you Kobe on TNT … and it’ll be ready for you in April ’cause y’all wont make the playoffs.”

Smith seemed excited about the prospect of Kobe during the NBA on TNT crew. The two-time NBA champion believes the dynamic between Bryant and O’Neal on the show would be must-see TV:

Could you imagine him sitting next to Shaq with us? Telling Lakers stories … why they hated each other. Why they loved each other. Oh man.”

With 78 games left to be played this season, Bryant has yet to indicate whether he’ll retire after his 20th NBA season. Kobe has struggled in the first four games with the veteran shooting a dismal 32.3 percent from the floor and 20.6 from beyond the arc.

Despite Bryant’s recent struggles on the court and a lot of the talk swirling about his drastic decline, Kobe has continues to stay the course while remaining reluctant to announce his retirement date.

We are probably the worst team in the NBA

  • Hmm, I guess I’ll have to refrase my reply as there must’ve slipped in some inappropriate word somewhere… Here goes:

    Sure, he was a mean momma as a player. It was quite funny when he went after Shaq – knowing people would be separating them before blows were thrown. πŸ˜€ However, he is the epitomy of a mentally challenged TV personality now.

  • Still not going to get the pick. They won’t be lucky like that again. Do you realize how difficult it is to get that top pick? We didn’t even get it this year.

  • I got faith in Kobe . . . Kobe has Always done what is right / best for LAL

  • Unfortunatley the best Byron knows how is not that good. Plus he konws that not reigning in Kobe is not the best way to coach. IF Kobe was another not-proven player he would not let him have his way with the ball. With his opinion on shooting the 3 do you think if any other player was shooting 20% from 3 and still jacking up almost 10 a game he wouldn’t have a conversation with them about it?

  • Lol yeah neither were Jordan or Bird, jsut don’t have the personality for it. Magic tried with his show but he realized he’s just not that interesting without the ball in his hands either.

  • Jordan broke alot of superstars that time his Bulls were just unbeatable that time

  • This season’s stat line:

    FGM-FGA: 6.0-20.4
    FG% .294
    3PM-3PA: 1.8-11.00
    3P% .164
    Those are Kobe’s stats right? WRONG…
    They are of James Harder, yet on ESPN there are headlines and videos all about Kobe being bad. Just look at Harder’s stats!

    James Harder is shooting an abysmal 29%. DAMN!

  • The point I was trying to make is that Kobe’s not a guy who loves attention or has the charm to him such as Magic, Shaq, or even a Dwight Coward has. Kobe is basically a reflection of Jordan, I know for a fact that Kobe wouldn’t want to be a guy sitting at a TV show cracking silly jokes all day with the TNT crew. If you follow his business moves, he’s making himself out to be bigger than basketball just as MJ has, making his own lane behind the scenes, such as investing in a sports drink Body Armor (Jordan has Gatorade), and he just invested in the Player’s Tribune. It’s no disrespect to commentators, it’s just everyone has different goals and personalities, Kobe’s just not a type of guy to be a TV host. Could you imagine while Kenny, Charles, and Shaq are all joking around, and Kobe is just sitting there with a stone cold look on his face

  • Barkley was a lot better than people give him credit or remember him for. It really is a shame that people don’t know just how good that guy was, both at that position and at that size.

    That said, even without Jordan blocking him, I don’t see any of the teams he played on getting a championship.

  • That’s what I initially thought. I think on maybe a straight up sports show on ESPN where he can discuss actual gameplay and analyse the game he could be good, maybe on that show on NBA TV with Steve Smith and them boys. But Kenny, Shaq, and Barkely clown around a bit too much for Kobe to work in that setting.

  • Agree, but he’s not #2, Steph Curry has filled that spot. Best scenario now is to make a solid trade acquisition before the trade deadline to help the starting rotation (I’d roll with a stretch 4).

  • Not to mention, Kobe would school Kenny on anything basketball related and Kenny would take umbrage to being upstaged the way he does whenever Shaq, Barkley, or a guest commentator does it.

    Kenny always has to be ‘the guy” on the show.

  • Not comparing. no diss to the chef but he likely won’t impact the game on both ends of the floor as 24 and Lebron have during those favorable times. However, Curry’s the best offensive player in the game today.

  • Will find out this year, if both stay healthy. Although, I don’t believe this would happen but would hate to see KD go the route of D Rose with relation to being injury riddled. Rose was seen as a superstar back then until the injuries pushed his decline.

  • This may benefit the Bulls, being not entirely relying on Rose’s athletic ability for offense as in the past years. Thus, if he can play more team ball they’d be alright but they don’t have the depth to beat the Cavs aside of style of play to play unselfish ball like the Hawks.

And why would KD come to the Lakers, when the Thunder are a Contender, and if he goes to the Wiz in the East, that makes it so much easier road to the Finals.

    bigger cities offer players bigger paychecks on and off th e court through shoe deals like Nike adidas ect… under armour.
    you get me?

  • KD when he first joined the NBA wasnt he on the seattle supersonics?

  • I was thinking LA could steal either Dallas or Portland’s playoff spot, but we are just as bad as them.

  • Man, sorry. I like you in some comments. But say that “Russel is trash” don’t help you. He’s a 19 year kid. Has talent and time to develop. I’m not saying this because i’m a laker..
    I think Exum, Aaron Gordon will be great players too. They need time

  • Charlotte is sneaky..they have a lot of big time college stars
    .at least in the east

  • Man, is just me or Demarcus Cousins and Anthony Davis are injury prones? They lost a bunch of a games for injury every year

  • I over exaggerated, but the kid has shown me nothing. I know it’s early, but he looks like a huge mistake right now.

  • Randle can go with any PF int he NBA and Jordan Clarkson is almost as good as any other SG in the NBA.
    pretty soon people will forget about James Harden they are gonna wanna see JC playing.
    Harden only shoots 3s like curry.
    Jordan will drive and attack the rim hes the real deal.
    like russell westbrook he isnt afraid of contact like Kobe and MJ.
    Harden is paper thin and needs baby foul calls or he cries.
    let me see him post up or drive and do something worth talking about.

  • I don’t think so. He has flashes. But his body just can’t play in the NBA. He’s too weak. Other players with 19 have more ready body’s… He has game, in my taste at least

  • Kobe is just off right now he hasn’t played really in the last 3 years give him a month or two to settle in.
    He will back to his old self.

  • He’s talking about last year. He had a few injuries that kept him out a few games.

  • Meh…Of course there will be a few nights where he can turn back the clock and have those Mamba moments, but he can’t sustain that high level of play for a whole season.

  • what do you think of trading Kobe for derrick rose.
    someone mentioned it earlier.
    i wouldnt wanna trade him not even for rose.
    even though rose is a good player. i say no whats your take on that?

  • Eavans is out for a few more weeks. Holliday is back, but he’s on a minute restriction and Asik is a few weeks away too. What’s saving them is that the rest of the bottom dwellers like the Lakers, Portland, Dallas are so bad, they can make up that ground.

  • He’s averaging 8.2 boards in 22 minutes. He is the glass sweeper and backup C the Lakers needed this season. Too bad they had to wait around hoping for unicorns, before they could even offer him a deal. I also wish Bazemore was still a Laker.

  • Bass is a PF, only Byron put him at C. But well, Black is undersized too

  • Yep, Bazemore and Davis were both favorites of mine. Our front office is frustrating sometimes

  • hes probably taller than tariq black and whats he 6’10?
    T Black is like 6’9. basically the same only ed can jump a tiny bit higher he can dunk at will and block more shots than black without fouling.

  • bro he never rebounded he didnt jump.

  • the 80s Laker team would destroy michael jordan.
    Kareem Magic Worthy man…

  • We’re all Armchair GM’s. LOL!!! We suck, i’m just as upset as all Laker fans. Storied Franchises like the Lakers/Boston should never be this bad. I understand everyone rebuilds, but not to the point where they are laughing stocks of the NBA.

  • True that. This is the bad part as they have already had multiple trips to the lottery and we still have to wait a few years for them to at least build a playoff team. It’s going to be awhile unless the west teams start to weaken via trades or free agency.

  • That’s all you can do is sit back and be patient. Man, it’s hard watching the product being put out on the floor for the Lakers. I knew we would be bad, but not this bad Defensively. Losing all 4 of these games against crappy teams teams had to be disheartening for them. 21 of the next 29 games on the Road will tell you a lot about them then.

  • Fakers are making the playoffs because WE GOT KOBRICK BEAN BRYANT !
    Hornets blowout Bulls AND Mavs
    Fakers lose to Mavs by 10 LOL
    Doesn’t take a n!gg*r to figure which team is better LOL

  • Dude, been to your shrine website. It’s hilarious…Lin stinks it up again and everyone can feel that it’s only a matter of time before he is down to 12 minutes per game. All the while blaming, Clifford, Kemba, Hairston, Batum and every other person but Lin. You guys are comedy gold.

  • i remember a couple guys said well start 10-0 and i told them id be happy with 7-3 or something.
    starting 0-4 best we can do now is 6-4 if we really turn it around.
    i hope being on the road brings these guys together bc fighting wont get us nowhere fast.
    if anything itll ruin precious chemistry we so desperately need….
