    The Lakers need to sign Durant at the asking price of $38 million, because then the team could bring Kobe back in the capacity of an Achilles healing expert/team president. The Mamba probably works harder than Pelinka, so if any nasty emails get sent, they will be from Kobe, claiming Rob is a slacker. Then too, Lebron would be satisfied to have another genuine star with whom to share age-related injury stories, as they steer the team toward the ultimate prize of qualifying for the playoffs.
