Kobe Bryant says he took what the Lakers offered him



When word was announced the Lakers signed Kobe Bryant to a two-year-$48-million-extension, people immediately began stating that the Lakers had ruined any possible shot at a title over the next two seasons. They also labeled Kobe as selfish, more concerned with money than winning. Kobe responded to those critics.

Lakers GM Mitch Kupchak weighed in on the topic stating, “maybe we got a deal, maybe not.”

Time is the only thing that will answer that question. But it certainly seems as if Melo to the Lakers next summer isn’t realistic.
