Lakers News: Lakers, Kobe Respond to Mark Cuban’s Amnesty Comments

Kobe BryantDallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban recently made comments concerning the Lakers and their use of the amnesty provision in the new CBA, and suggested they use it on Kobe Bryant. There’s no question Bryant’s contract is an enormous hindrance for the team financially, and Cuban suggested that the team rid themselves of his deal and focus on moving forward.

However, several people in Los Angeles, including team spokesman John Black, were not too fond of Cuban’s comments, according to Mark Medina of the L.A. Daily News.

“We’re aware of Mark Cuban’s comments. We feel they’re inappropriate,” Lakers spokesman John Black said. “As far as the issue itself, we’re not going to comment publicly on the amnesty issue as it relates to any of our players.”

Bryant was also asked about Cuban’s remarks following Friday night’s victory over the Portland Trail Blazers. In typical Kobe fashion, he laughed them off and downplayed the entire situation.

While the financial benefits of amnestying a player with Kobe’s contract are certainly there, don’t expect the team to be considering this move anytime soon. Bryant is still producing at a high level, despite being in his 17th NBA season.

      I absolutely agree with you. I think his comments is more directed to the young and inexperience owner in Jim Buss, to see if Jimmy boy flinches.

    Cuban wins 1 Championship and he sticks his nose into other teams business? Whether he likes it or not the Lakers will always be a better franchise and team than his team will ever be with or without Kobe. Cuban needs to focus on his own team…whatcha gonna do when Dirk is retired? Amnesty Dirk…
