The 2015-16 season will mark the final year of Kobe Bryant's contract with the Los Angeles Lakers, during which he’ll be paid a league-high $25 million. But it remains unclear if Bryant, who will be 37 when next season begins, will want to play beyond that, even though Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak has said Bryant has indicated next season will be his last with the team. “It might be,” Bryant said Saturday during an interview with ESPN's Jemele Hill at the BET Experience at the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles. ESPN LA
“At the end of the season, if I feel like going through this again and doing it all over again, I will. If I feel like, I don’t, I won’t,” [Bryant] said. “I won’t make a big deal about it or whatever. I’ll be ready to move on. I’ll be ready to do something else. “I’ll be ready to take on that challenge and try to show athletes, listen, we are more than this." ESPN LA
The 76ers were ordered to pay the New Orleans Pelicans $3 million by the NBA last season for not fully disclosing Jrue Holiday's injury history before he was traded two years ago, according to two sources. The Sixers traded Holiday, an all-star point guard, to the Pelicans on the night of the 2013 NBA draft for the rights to Nerlens Noel, the sixth overall pick that year. Philadelphia Inquirer
The sources said Holiday played with stress fractures in his lower right leg during his final season with the Sixers. Those injures weren't fully disclosed to the Pelicans, the sources said. Sixers general manager Sam Hinkie declined to comment, but a Sixers team source disputed the allegation. Philadelphia Inquirer
According to the other two sources, the Sixers are now trying to receive a payment from the Los Angeles Lakers for allegedly misinforming them about Andrew Bynum. Philadelphia Inquirer
Shawn Marion FINALLY unloaded his Miami condo ... the one he was so desperate to sell, he once offered up Super Bowl tickets to any takers! The former NBA champ closed the deal on the massive, 7,373 sq. ft pad, which features six bedrooms and seven baths. It's located in a super exclusive Coconut Grove gated community. TMZ
People who are saying Lakers rookie D'Angelo Russell will replace Kobe Bryant need to "stop that s**t" -- 'cause Kobe Bryant is irreplaceable ... so says Lakers superfan Ice Cube. Cube says he's a fan of Russell -- and says he's exactly what the Lakers need -- but claims all the talk about Russell filling the Mamba's shoes when he retires of a giant crock. TMZ
