1. Because he is still top 3 player in game
2. He is a world wide icon.
3. Most well known basketball player in the world
4. He generates more revenue than any other player in the nba
5. He is a legend
Lol really not that hard to think why they gave him the money
But he doesn't play defense and is obviously the main reason we are sucking dick right now... even though we magically started playing like [expletive] when Pau got back two games ago. It's still Kobe's fault. Anyone who disagrees needs to get their eyes checked. Kobe's old just because he can still dominate games at 34 years of age in his 17th season doesn't mean the Lakers should approve his contract. He only brought us 5 rings, so what? He isn't defending players he's backing off of them and leaving shooters wide open even though he has to to provide help often times because Pau is a statue out there and does literally nothing...
