Kobe to Detroit?

by

Let’s call it: The Rumor. The tall tale went like this: The Pistons could get Lakers guard Kobe Bryant in a trade.

Given the disappointment of losing to Cleveland in the Eastern Conference finals, many believed the Pistons were going to work a major deal in the offseason by breaking up the championship nucleus.
Enter Bryant.
The buzz was the Pistons would part with Richard Hamilton, Tayshaun Prince, Amir Johnson and/or a first round pick for Bryant, arguably the best player in the NBA.
“Yeah, I heard that, too,” Chauncey Billups said before the Pistons beat the Wizards, 104-85, at The Palace Wednesday night.
Then again Billups, who signed a five-year contract this summer, heard about many sign-and-trade deals. One had Mr. Big Shot himself going to Houston.
But Billups is still here and Bryant is on the West Coast.
