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.”
