Real Reason for Kobe attending the Dwight Meeting

Real Reason for Kobe attending the Dwight Meeting

Postby Sirron on Mon Jul 01, 2013 8:24 pm

I say it's to inform Dwight that he plans on playing on a minimal contract for the next several years so that they can bring in another star player in '14. That will shock the heck out of Dwight.

* Kobe will be limited this year meaning Dwight needs to carry more of the load. Transition to "The Man" starts now.
* Full training camp with Dantoni, and a willingness to change schemes to feature Dwight more
* Targeting shooters all over the place to space the floor
* Expiring K's and Kobe willing to take less to bring in lots of high end talent next year
* Lakers have proven they are willing to spend money like no other club

Thank you Kobe in advance for being such a selfless team player. :jam2:

:man10:

Here's what'll happen... 2014-
1. Nash/Dwight on contract for about 30 million.
2. Sign LeBron for 20 million.
3. Sign some other great player for 10 million.
4. Kobe comes back for the minimum.

Nash/Other Great/Kobe/LeBron/Dwight. Boom.

Probably reiterate his phone conversation with Dwight about having him at a Chandler type role... rebounding and defense. 3rd to 4th option :man10: way to sabotage your case Laker brass

I don't think even a 50 year old Kobe would play for a minimal/minimum contract, I just do not think he has it in him as a prideful athlete. If he REALLY wants to win he can prove us wrong by signing for 5 to 10 mil.

I thought it was so Mitch could borrow Kobe's helicopter to dangle Dwight from if he says he's not staying?

no way kobe signs for anything near the min. I can def see him signing in the high teens though. That would actually help a lot.

The main reason is to convince him that a lifetime supply of free chicken wings isn't all that's cracked up to be.

i hope it's that. dirk will be at the meeting telling dwight that he's planning on taking a large cut in order to add another impact player next year. it won't look good if kobe's not willing to do the same, imo.

i've said since day one that people were selling the lakers and dallas way short (relative to houston) in terms of ability to build a winner. it just takes an extra year, but they can do better than houston pretty easily, imo. but if kobe won't take less money, that's not a possibility.

I thought it was cause Kobe likes the buffett
For what it's worth, the Lakers also clinched the Pacific Division, an achievement Bryant dismissed by saying "We don't hang divisions." No, only the big NBA championship banners are considered wall-worthy for the Lakers.

there is no way kobe takes significantly less money. he will get KG/Duncan type money, which is no where close to the minimum.

I dont know. I doubt it'll be vet min. but i dont think it'll be over $10 mil a year. If he wants to win hes smart enough to know the financial limitations of a good team. He'll help them out im sure by taking less than $10-$11 mil a year im sure

I think Kobe will probably leave the Lakers enough room to sign a max deal... then take whatever he can after that.
