[new_royalslider id=”196″]

Los Angeles Lakers superstar Kobe Bryant will not finish the season on the floor for the second season in a row. Kobe’s knee injury turned out to be too much to overcome and was forced to shut it down.

Ironically enough, the next time Kobe takes the floor in purple and gold next season, there’s a chance he could be playing alongside Love. Kobe spoke to the media on Wednesday after being ruled out for the season and emphasized wanting the Lakers to contend next season.

With that being said, Kobe may have forced the hands of Mitch Kupchak and company heading into the off-season. The Lakers will likely have a high pick in the 2014 NBA Draft and seemed intent on using it to bring in a talented young player. Dante Exum, Joel Embiid, Andrew Wiggins and Jabari Parker will likely be available, but trading the pick may potentially be the better option to win now.
