Fuck, Kobe.The whole loyalty thing is bullshit. Kobe was willing to ditch the Lakers for the Bulls, or Clippers at one point. Both parties would just be better off in different situations. The Lakers know they aren't going to win with him, but he makes them so much money with merchandise, and ticket sales.Kobe is underpaid for all the revenue he generates. As a California tax payer he totally gets screwed.
