LOS ANGELES - Kobe Bryant is one of the wealthiest athletes in all of sports. According to The Amalgamated Data Gathering Agency he has a net worth of $200 million.
Sports Balls Illustrated Daily is reporting that Bryant made $26 million for the past season and will make $30.5 million for the 2013-2014 season even if he has to play on one crutch.
The Lakers organization is trying to rebuild for the future and will most likely ask their star player to take a pay cut down to $27 million in order to free up some money to bring in some new, younger players.
But the man who nicknamed himself Vino told Rufus Reno with SBID that he will take a pay cut when Laos puts a man on the moon [i.e. never].
The die-hard Laker fans are furious for Kobe being so damn greedy. Reno pointed out that if you take Bryant's yearly salary and divide it by 82 regular season games, this past season he made $317,000 per game!
It is probably a safe bet to say that most Laker fans do not make $317,000 in a whole year except of course for the number one Laker fan of all time Jack "The Look" Nicholson.
SIDENOTE: Perhaps Zydeco Dupree said it best when he remarked that Kobe boy is lucky-as-hell that he isn't sitting in some prison in Colorado.
