”It’s fun,” said Bryant, who also had 12 rebounds and seven assists. ”He’s one of my all-time favorites. He’s a throwback type of player. He doesn’t mind the physicality. He made some incredible plays down the stretch.”

”I’m sure if he wants to amnesty Dirk, that’s something we’ll be willing to entertain,” Bryant told reporters.foxsports

“If you look at their payroll, even if Dwight (Howard) comes back, you’ve got to ask the question: Should they amnesty Kobe?” Cuban told Ben and Skin on ESPN Dallas 103.3 FM on Friday. “You just don’t know, right? It’s the same reason I wouldn’t get rid of Dirk (Nowitzki). I’ll take a hit for a season rather than get rid of Dirk. That’s just it. I’ve made that commitment to him over the years, and he’s returned that commitment. Maybe that’s selfish, but that’s just the way it is.

“So I’m just saying that hypothetically. When I say amnesty Kobe, I don’t think they’d do it, but they’ve got some choices to make. Now, they’re in a big market, but they’re still limited. The Knicks, the same thing. Boston, same thing.” – espn

Kobe single-handedly led the LA Lakers to a 103-99 win over the Dallas Mavericks on Sunday with 38 points, 12 boards and seven assists! Kobe was clutch collecting seven points in the last three minutes, and 14 points for the entire fourth quarter! He clearly won the duel between him and Dirk Nowitzki who finished with 30 points! Steve Nash scored a season-high 20 points! The Lakers are trying hard for a late playoff push (in Ninth place in the tough Western Conference) and bested their record to almost .500 (28-29), but are still several games back from the eighth place Houston Rockets (31-27)! Before the game, Mavs’ owner Mark Cuban tried to get cute and made a twitter remark (on Friday) about how the Lakers should amnesty Kobe! Kobe replied after the game (on twitter), and even added a comment about they amnesty Dirk, so the Lakers could pick him up! Cuban appreciated the response from Kobe!
