Arguably, one of the best to ever play the game, Kobe Bryant, has re- signed his contract with the Los Angeles Lakers for 2 Years. Even though he has yet to take the floor for the 2013-2014 NBA Season due to injury. Ironically, yesterday was his first full speed practice too.

Per team policy, terms of the contract were not released, but according to reports, Bryant is set to earn between $40 million and 50 million over the two-year period.
“This is a very happy day for Lakers fans and for the Lakers organization,” said Kupchak. “We’ve said all along that our priority and hope was to have Kobe finish his career as a Laker, and this should ensure that happens. To play 20 years in the NBA, and to do so with the same team, is unprecedented, and quite an accomplishment.
“Most importantly however, it assures us that one of the best players in the world will remain a Laker, bringing us excellent play and excitement for years to come.”
