first_imgLAS VEGAS – Unwieldy contract be damned. Bad back? No problem. Kobe Bryant isn’t thinking about any of the negatives attached to a trade for Nets point guard Jason Kidd. “This team is young and if you have the opportunity to bring a player like Jason Kidd in, that’s something you definitely, definitely have to look at,” Bryant said Saturday before the West All-Star team practiced at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center. “I hear all the talks going on. I don’t know the seriousness of it, or the possibility of it, but it’s still exciting. “Although politics and government are not our beat, it sure would be nice to see a plan, completely unrelated to basketball to deal with issues for the people of New Orleans that haven’t been dealt with. “We want to be good citizens, but we’d like to see something that takes care of the displaced people. That place hasn’t really made a lot of progress because it really is not going to be that much fun to be there if progress hasn’t been made.” Kevin Garnett gets a lot of the same questions. A few years ago, it was, “When are the Timberwolves going to get past the first round of the playoffs?” Then, after the Wolves made it to the Western Conference Finals in 2004, it became, “When are you going to win a championship?” But the questions have turned gloomier now that Minnesota has missed the playoffs for two consecutive years. More like, “Can you win in Minnesota?” or “Do you need to win a championship to cement your legacy?” Garnett plays it cool for the most part, but it’s obvious the team’s struggles are starting to get to him. “If something is coming down the pipe, we’ll definitely talk about it.” NBA Commissioner David Stern had some pointed words for politicians in New Orleans – the site of next year’s All Star game – saying the NBA was committed to the Hornets, but disappointed in the city’s slow recovery from Hurricane Katrina. center_img “I’m pretty sure, until you win a championship, that’s going to be the next question,” Garnett said. “It’s like, when you’re single, people ask, when are you going to get a girlfriend. Then when you get a girlfriend, they ask when you’re going to get married. After you get married, they ask when you’re going to have kids.” So one has to ask, “Can you get it done in Minnesota?” “We’ll see,” he said, adding a wink. Plenty of NBA players draw large crowds of international media. Dirk Nowitzki draws a pack of German reporters. Yao Ming has a small army of Chinese media following him. But the Lakers’ Bryant, who will start at point guard for the West in today’s All-Star game, seems to be a hit all over the world. At Saturday’s media session alone, reporters from China, Guatemala, India and Israel asked Bryant to say hello to fans back home in their countries. “I’ve said hi in Spanish, (Hebrew), German, Chinese. I don’t think I’ve done Polish yet,” he said. [email protected] (818) 713-3607 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
