Kobe Bryant Has Message For Mark Cuban.

Kobe Bryant delivers a message to Mark Cuban.

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Careful when you play with the Black Mamba. He might bite back.

Kobe Bryant apparently wasn’t amused by Mark Cuban’s using him as an example of a player that the Lakers could theoretically amnesty under the new CBA agreement. Bryant is due over $30 million next year from the Lakers and if they amnestied him they wouldn’t have to pay the new $1 to $1.5 penalty that could cost Los Angeles upwards of $85 million if they resigned Howard and maintained their current lineup.

Kobe responded with the following tweet after defeating the Mavs 103-99 and dropping 38 points.

Cuban didn’t appear fazes stating, “Any time you try to explain the CBA, it’s hard to do without giving an example,” he said. “Whenever the commissioner or anybody talks about the CBA, they talk about Dallas and Tyson Chandler or Dallas and Dirk or whatever. You’ve got to use examples.

“I was clear saying it was hypothetical and I didn’t expect it to be that way, but it was a good example because they have the highest payroll and the highest-paid player in the league. That’s the end of the story.”
