Under/Over on Kobe and Howard remaining as Lakers next year?

I say Howard goes elsewhere, because no way they're gonna amnesty Kobe, and besides, Howard does not have the temperament of a winner, and whatever else, the Lakers are winners.
That isn't how over / under works.

The Lakers have a lot of problems, in that they're old and slow. Nash turned out to be a horrible fit, and D'Antoni's inability to use Gasol effectively seems indicative of a systemic problem. They obviously aren't going to amnesty Kobe, but they can't count on him being a major contributor in the early part of next season (if at all). I have to think that Howard stays and tries to rebuild his reputation, but the team has a lot of holes to fill elsewhere.
