according to basketball reference Kobe Bryant has made $107,594,865 in his professional basketball career
I know hes probably spent around 20-30 million so far in his career but still that'll leave him with about 80 million he still has(unless he is throwing millions away weekly):)
If I were him I'd sit out for the LAL,and take the team to court in order to have my contract terminated,id even pay up to 20 million just so I can be a free agent
unless they actually go out and bring in some all-star talent to help me or im quitting.
its too late to do this now for this year but it would be revolutionary for NBA to have a player take a team to court to have his contract terminated if they cant trade him,it will show NBA GM's and owners that its actually the players who run the team and without a star player the team loses money due to poor ticket sales and other setbacks
this basically would make GM's think extra hard when their team is losing and their star is disgruntled
in the NBA,star players(in their prime) are usually irreplaceable because few first round picks come into the NBA and immediately become stars compared to the NFL where when a star leaves,they use their first rounder to replace them
