Kobe Bryant Signs 2-Year Extension with Los Angeles Lakers

Kobe Bryant signed a two-year contract extension with the Los Angeles Lakers on Monday.

The Lakers did not announce financial terms, but a source told ESPNLosAngeles.com’s Ramona Shelburne that the deal is worth $48.5 million.

Even as a huge Laker fan, I don’t see the logic behind this decision. Kobe Bryant has been one of the best players of the current era, but I certainly thought this would be his last year. As great as he is, age eventually catches up with you.

But I could be terribly wrong. They don’t call him the Black Mamba for nothing.
