Not to even begin the point was he was injured, and not even jogging yet when he signed it. It's one thing to give it to him after he comes back and you're a little more sure he's going to be ok, but to give it to him before that even takes place is beyond stupid.
I don't care what he's done the past 17 years, I care about the 2 they now owe him that he may never be able to play thru.
It was a horrible contract, and the Lakers should absolutely be shamed for doing so.
oh yes, they got robbed. why would they pay him so much (when he aint going anywhere else) and eats up so much of the salary cap. guess $$ is most important for kobe in his last 2 season.
Maybe it is. Maybe it's not.
What's it to us if it is?
You gonna sit there and deny 48 million dollars if it's being handed to you? You gonna say "nah give me half I wanna prove to NT fans I care more about winning?"
Oh. Yeah. You would realistically do that
The dudes wife was inches from stripping 150
Million from his bank account and you blame him for taking what he can get? She can still leave him tomorrow and take half. Think about it bro, it's not as black and white as you think.
It's awful for the team. It's awful for basketball reasons. I hate it. I do. It should NEVER have been offered. There should of been a negotiation.
But how are you going to judge a grown man who accepts such a large offer when he's made that franchise billions? If you felt that you were making your company billions would you say no to a big contract raise for the better of the company? Just think about it.
You got a wife and kids. Who will someday have grand kids. You not thinkin about their future? You gonna tell your boss "nah keep the money I got enough but thanks" ????
