Goodbye Kobe, Hello LeBron?

There has been an unbelievable amount of speculation concerning the upcoming 2010 free agent class in the NBA, and for very good reason. The bulk of NBA power might be shifted dramatically in just a matter of weeks, resulting in an NBA power landscape that is completely different from the one we have become accustomed to over the years. With the main pillars of power residing in Los Angeles, Cleveland, and Boston, the rest of the NBA is forced to be nothing more than moats around the elite’s castles. However, due to the salary cap and free agency, the competitive playing field is supposed to be able to level itself out over a period of time. The upcoming free agent class has the ability to shift the NBA superpowers in a way we have never seen before, as high class superstars may be jumping ship for a chance at smoother sailing.

Everybody knows the most high profile free agents to be as LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh. For the past few years people have speculated where each of these players will end up, but as of right now none of us have any idea. While James, Wade, and Bosh may get all the attention in the upcoming class, there is another one who is sailing under the radar because nobody expects him to land anywhere else other than Los Angeles. Kobe Bryant chose not to opt out of his current contract at the end of last season, meaning it will run out at the end of the season, immediately dropping him into the free agent pool with James, Wade, and the rest. While everybody is expecting Bryant to re-sign with Los Angeles without much dispute, there may be several reasons why the Lakers, not Bryant, might want to reconsider.
