Kobe won't sign a shoe contract until after the Finals

Postby clublakers on Sun Apr 20, 2003 9:42 pm

I get a lot of emails asking what is up with Kobe's shoe contract. This is what we know today:

Kobe is icing Nike until after the Finals.

Kobe's statement is he doesn't want to negotiate during the playoffs, and for good reason. The real reason is Nike isn't meeting Kobe's asking price, so Kobe (ie. his negotiating staff) is burning Nike by taking away media opportunity for the WCF and Finals if and when the Lakers make it that far.

In short, he won't sign now until late June or July, but don't be surprised if something gets hammered out prior to the WCF if the Lakers are involved.
Call it from Heaven Chick.

DON'T HATE ON KOBE'S GAME, HE PLAYS WAY BETTER THAN ALOT OF "YOUR BOYS" THAT WENT TO COLLEGE. IF SOMEONE HAS SKILLS LIKE THAT LET THEM DO ALL THEY CAN WITH THE TALENT GOD GAVE THEM, SIPPIN' ON HATER-AIDE WILL NOT STOP JIS SKILLS AND WON'T PAY YOU BILLS. LET KOBE MAKE ALL THE MONEY HIS TALENT WILL LET HIM.

That's all the reasoning Queens fan can come up with... They have nothing to back up their ignorant comments, and therefore seem "intellegent" when giving an explanation of their assumptions

And people wonder why nobody likes a Sacramento Fan :man7:

Anyways, "Kobe sucks"?

Kobes Records:
9 straight 3 pointers in a row, in a single game - new record
12, 3 pointers hit in a single game - new record
Helped set Laker franchise record for most 3 pointers in a game - 18
9 straight 40 pt games
13 straight 35 pt games
16 straight 30 pt games
3rd player in NBA history to avg over 40 for a whole month
Youngest player in NBA history to score 10,000 points in a career
Set Lakers franchise record with 42 points in a single half
3rd Laker to average 30 points in a season (Joining Baylor & West)
Kobe was the top fourth-quarter scorer this season

Pure Jealousy

It makes me laugh when uneducated "Queens" fans post their opinions and spell simple words wrong.. Come on, most of us type using "ur" instead of "you're" and that's not ignorant... But when their fans can't spell... :man10: It just makes me wonder if they're gonna start bringin out the cowbells in the Utah series..

If they're gonna post an opinion, at least have some facts to back it up, and not just, "Kobe sucks" and "He never went to college." :man3:

Kobe didn't go to college?

No wonder he sucks. I thought that stupid look on his face was just from all of those steroids he pumped up on last summer.

:disagree:

Man, I swear some people get dumber day by day...

Kobe doesn't drink or smoke, hes a gym rat, that's all there is to it....

And just because you can't think of a single guy are your team that has improoved that much, and has as much work ethic and desire to learn as Kobe does, don't come in here with immature comments. Post some reason to your arguments.

*****Back on topic*****

Holding out until after winning a 4th consecutive title is very smart and enterprising of Kobe. His stock will definitely rise then! Nike knows Kobe is worth whatever money he wants.
