Marc Cuban Wanting To Amnesty Kobe?

Leave it up to Dallas Maverick's owner, Mark Cuban, to provide his two cents on what the 16-Time World Champion's Los Angeles Lakers should do with their superstar Kobe Bryant.  I mean don't get me wrong Cuban just gutted his own team last season so he has some idea of what to do.  Maybe its his way of reaching out to the Buss Family during trying times.

Let's play devil's advocate:

Kobe is due a mere $30 million next season which puts the Lakers over the luxury tax threshold by $7 million.  That doesn't even include the hopeful signing of the summer's biggest free agent, Dwight Howard.  Howard will command at least $20 million a season on his upcoming deal which even creates more of chaos for the Lakers.  Once you pass $5 million over the luxury tax, it increases to $1.75 for every dollar over. After that, every $5 million over goes from $2.50 to $3.25 to $3.75 and increases $.50 for every $5 million after that.  But we are talking about Kobe!  Kobe Bryant is the Mr. Laker, he is the draw, the 5-Time NBA champion that is relied upon the success of the franchise.  His legacy belongs in a purple and gold uniform.
