PHOTO: Kobe Responds to Criticism About Extension On Instagram

On Monday morning, the Los Angeles Lakers shocked the basketball world when the team announced that they re-signed Kobe Bryant to a two-year contract worth $48.5 million. With the extension likely guaranteeing that Kobe will retire a Laker, the dollar amount of the contract has created controversy. Some feel that it is well-deserved for the five-time champion while others feel that Bryant should have taken a significant pay cut to help bring in two max contract players this upcoming summer.

With everyone debating the extension and future implications for the franchise, Bryant took notice of a commenter on his Instagram who said that the Lakers star only cares about his bank account instead of his winning legacy:

“Loyalty only to his bank account! Should have taken pay cut to bring in talent if he really cared about winning legacy.”

Here’s the photo of Kobe Bryant’s response on Instagram via Hardwood Paroxysm:
