Default Kobe 3million for 40days

ESPN just reported a verbal agreement that will pay Kobe 3million for 40days of work.

Here is the article:

Quote:
Here's the true sign that at least part of the NBA season appears in jeopardy. Lakers guard Kobe Bryant reportedly reached a verbal agreement to play with the Italian professional basketball team Virtus Bologna. Bryant will earn $3 million, reports the Associated Press, for the first 40 days of the Italian League season beginning Oct. 9. Meanwhile, the NBA has delayed the start of training camp and canceled 43 exhibition games through Oct. 15.

"Deal is done at 95%," Virtus Bologna owner Claudio Sabatini told Sportando.

Virtus Bologna informed via its official website that Legabasket rejected its proposal to make a special schedules for the Italian team in case of Kobe Bryant's signing. Virtus asked to play as many game as possible during the 40 days of Kobe Bryant in Italy against the best team and in the biggest arena. The goal of Virtus was to have big share and the biggest arena sold out to make more money. The other Italian teams refused the request made by Virtus and now the deal between Bologna and Kobe Bryant is on the verge of collapse.Sportando

Regardless I just want to see the guy play. He is totally getting robbed by this strike. Last year he was showing shades of 93' Larry. His window to climb the all time pts leader ladder is dwindling as well. He needs realistically 225-230 games at 20 pt avg. to surpass Jordan.

that's actually a substantial pay cut from his nba salary. in 40 days with the lakers last year he made approximately $4,760,000, give or take.

this is based on $25,000,000 (approx.) in salary and a season from oct 3 (first day of pre season) until may 8 when they were eliminated by dallas. and the amount should actually be even higher because i don't believe that playoff games are connected to that $25 mil in salary.

Yeah, except all European taxes are paid by the team (it's all payroll tax and not income tax) - so Kobe walks away with the cash. Here, he pays taxes.

No state income tax. There is federal income tax.
