So if they amnesty Kobe could they stop other teams from buying his rights? The way I understand the amnesty provision if he is amnestied teams can bid or his player rights. For a team like Charlotte with low future prospects owning the rights to Kobe, even if he sits out a year, may be too grand a carrot not to reach for.
Back to your theory-- Do you guys remember the Spurs the season they drafted Duncan? THAT was a sham! Every player on that team was "injured." After the Admiral got hurt dudes went down like flies. The top scorer on that team was a well past it Dominique Wilkins who came back for a season after his stint owning a lot less competitive than it is now Euroleague. And the only reason he was playing was so that there was a player who people had heard of. The next season, surprisingly all the starters were healthy again, they had Duncan and I believe they won that first title.
SO if Nash, Gasol, and Howard get hurt during the playoffs, beginning of next season I will not be surprised where Wiggins lands.
