All About the Money

In an interview with the fan site, Lakers Nation, this week, Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant talked candidly about his plans for contract negations when he becomes a free agent next year. “For me to sit here and say, ‘Oh yeah, I’m just going to take a huge pay cut. Nah, I’m going to try to get as much as I possibly can," the shooting guard said. If that's the case, his salary demands will make it harder for the team to acquire new talent, which could hamper the Lakers future championship aspirations, Yahoo! Sports pointed out.
