The on of the best players the Lakers have ever had, Kobe Bryant, made public that he wants out of the team.

Kobe Bryant wants to leave the LakersDuring a radio interview with ESPN, Bryant admitted he had requested to be traded, after calling the main office of the basketball team a mess. His multimillion dollar contract, however, has four years left, out of the seven he signed under.

The whole controversy started when an L.A. reporter quoted an insider from the Lakers saying that Shaq's trade to Miami was triggered by tensions between him and Kobe. But according to Kobe Bryant, in his conversation with coach Phil Jackson, reducing of payroll and a long term plan was the explanation behind this.

On Tuesday, Bryant did a series of radio interviews bashing the Lakers. He insisted the owner Jerry Buss misled him three years ago, saying the team would try immediately to rejoin the NBA's elite. Yesterday Buss was arrested (and later released) on DUI charges in Carlsbad.

Kobe Bryant has won three consecutive NBA championships with the Lakers.

The online betting website Bodog Sports has San Antonio Spurs as their favorite to win the NBA Championship this year with odds 2/7, underdogs are Utah Jazz with odds 40/1.
