The Lakers heard Mark Cuban’s comments about Kobe Bryant. They weren’t amused.
The Dallas Mavericks owner said in a radio interview Friday that the Lakers should consider using their one-time amnesty provision on Bryant this summer.
Bryant has one more season and $30.5 million left on his contract. He is one of four players the Lakers can waive via the money-saving device after this season.
The Lakers lined up alongside Kobe Bryant, or behind him, or something, when asked if they agreed with his optimistic belief they would make the playoffs.
They then backed it up with a gritty 111-107 victory Friday over the Portland Trail Blazers at Staples Center.
That’s two in a row for the Lakers, reason enough to throw a victory parade in a season to dismember.
