these nba players make enough money doin mcdonalds commercials that they can afford to play for "only" $5 million a year
I dont see NBA GM's taking paycuts to hire better analysts and scouts. Its a business and its supply and demand. Get paid what your worth then get out

You mean lockout, not strike

Why would the players strike when they're getting paid big money?

The owners were the ones that locked out the players in 2011

The players wanted to play

He's right. Its not his job to take a pay cut

But if he plans to hog majority of the cap again he should expect to never compete for another championship.

Lakers should tell Kobe you don't want to take a paycut? Fine you can help pay the luxury tax.

See if he changes his mind then.

He will, he knows whats @ stake.

Kobe Bryant told ESPNLosAngeles.com on Wednesday that he fully intends to retire as a Laker someday and doesn't believe there will be any problem securing an extension for as long as he can play at an elite level.

There have yet to be any discussions between Bryant's camp and the Lakers about an extension, he said, so neither side has any idea yet what type of salary he will command. Bryant is currently the highest-paid player in the league at $30.5 million this season.

More on the Lakers

For more news, notes and analysis of the Lakers, check out the Lakers Index. Blog

"As a businessman the goal is always to not take a pay cut," Bryant said. "But ..."

The Lakers had intended to approach Bryant about an extension this summer, league sources said, but those plans were tabled until Bryant got further into his rehabilitation from Achilles tendon surgery in April.

Bryant said he didn't intend to approach the Lakers about an extension until "the dust settled" on their other business this summer.

Earlier Tuesday, Bryant was asked by Lakers Nation, a fan website, if he would take a huge pay cut, possibly to a one-year minimum salary at $1.45 million, to stay with the Lakers. Bryant later told ESPN that since negotiations have yet to begin, it was pointless to bring up a number that he'd be willing to play for.

Yet in those time Micheal was always the best player but wasn't always the highest paid . He said that Micheal made 30 million with the wizards which was wrong. He made 30 million in the last two season of back to back to back championships while Kobe is going to be taking up that much salary in a cap era for a team that is suppose attract free agents who.

I know, but it still was a million so the wizards could save money or improve the team whatever the reason was it was it was still only a million.

If Kobe asks for 20+ million for the 2014-15 season, he should walk plain and simple. "Thank you for 18 years, good luck in your future." that what mitch/jim need to say. If any of you feel he should be paid that money, then you need to step back and think about where your loyalty is. Team, or player?
