Kobe will work on a good contract after next year when he is off the books. He probably wont be getting paid as much for his last contract. Dont expect Kobe to play for any other team but the Lakers. He is Lakers for life. that is the only "restructuring" you will see from Kobe when his current contract is over.
And yes, let it go. This off season is the lamest off season Lakers will have. They wont get any players that will make this team better. They will get rid of some people and keep the "core" guys together with Mike D Antoni as coach weather you like it or not. We are stuck with this for another season. I am looking forward to it.
