Marion along with Joe Johnson and a draft pick will be more than enough to get Kobe in a sign and trade.

says you?

Phoenix is a run and gun team with Marion. Not only is Marion a great one-on-one defender, but he is versatile enough to rebound and play defense.

If we can keep Marion, Amare and pursue Kobe... I agree, we can become championship contenders. But losing Marion + Johnson just for Kobe is not enough.

And who says Kobe will automatically fit into the line-up/system?
Kobe is a great talent, but he jacks up more shots than Marion. With Lampe, Cabarkapa etc and other euros in Suns uniforms. We need a team that are willing to sacrifice shots for the team.

Marion, I can see doing that, but Kobe? He will average 30+ points... but suns will never pass the second round of any playoff series... in the west.
