    Bryant re-signs with Los Angeles Lakers: report

    July 15, 2004
    LOS ANGELES (AFP) - Kobe Bryant, who won three NBA titles in the past five years, has reportedly re-signed with the Los Angeles Lakers .

    ESPN television said terms were not disclosed but Bryant reportedly received a seven-year deal worth about 136 million dollars.

    Bryant had to choose between the Lakers and the Los Angeles Clippers who were offering a six-year contract at 100 million dollars.

    The Lakers declined to confirm or deny the deal was done.

    The signing comes just one day after the Lakers traded disgruntled giant Shaquille O'Neal to the Heat for forwards Lamar Odom, Brian Grant, Caron Butler and a future first-round pick.

    Come on Mili he's a hig-profile athlete with money to burn when it comes to his legal team. :biggrin:

    Even if he's found guilty, he'll get slapped with just probation.

    Projected Laker line-up:

    PG - Gary Payton
    SG - Kobe Bryant
    SF - Caron Butler
    PF - Lamar Odom
    C - Brian Grant

    ...and I'm not convinced they won't go out and get a guy like Dampier to help out in the middle. Looks like a pretty good team to me. They haven't done as much to help themselves as the Jazz, Suns, or Nuggets, but I think they'll be pretty good this year (assuming Kobe does just get a slap on the wrist).

    We'll see if Kobe is really the prodigal son, because this is definitely his team now. It'll all be heaped on him if they underachieve...which I believe they will.
