I'd like to get you guys (and gals - yay now give me a button for being pc) feedback/opinions on this. I mean Kobe is the ultimate competitor who wants that 6th ring, yet he demands a contract that all but guarantees we won't be able to get enough support to help him contend for it. I'm a HUGE Kobe fan, but at this point he's just not worth 24 million. Actually not even close. If that's his ego talking fine, but then his ego has for once screwed his own chance at his goal.
As for us as an organization, not a lot of top free agents want to play with Kobe. If we had Kobe and someone else, that would be much more of a welcoming situation, however once we sign someone else, we run out of cap space. So this means that for the next two years with Kobe, we're basically crippled.
To me, this contract seems like a VERY very unwise decision. Your thoughts?
