RT @lakerholicz: ---> if Gasol were making $5 to $10 million, you'd never move him. He's talked about because of the $ not his play.Steve Kyler @stevekylerNBA 17 Apr
RT @acekiker: --> Lakers have $99.8 million in salary... next year the tax on that number is $83.2mil, just the tax. in 2014 its $112.8milSteve Kyler @stevekylerNBA 17 Apr
RT @concrusher: ---> The Lakers will always be a top spender, but the days of a $100 mil payroll are going away.
Something that is not in this accounting is the fact that the remaining Buss' will have to pay a massive amount of "Death Tax" for Dr. Buss' estate which includes the Lakers. That number could also top 100M easily....
The revenue from the team will not support that and the payroll and the NBA taxes over the next 18 months..... not even close.
The planning they are doing in house will most likely take this into account and they have to be looking at what type of team they can put on the court in 3 to 4 years out because that is what they will be living off of..... not anything Kobe related as that will be beyond his effective career.
