The Lakers defeated the Dallas Mavericks on Sunday, 103-99, days after Mavericks owner Mark Cuban suggested that the Lakers may consider using their amnesty clause on Kobe Bryant this summer.
After leading the Lakers to victory with 38 points, Bryant sent out the following tweet:
Amnesty THAT— Kobe Bryant (@kobebryant) February 24, 2013
Cuban responded with a pair of tweets:
Nice to know there is a least one team and their players, outside of the Mavs, that listen to everything I say.— Mark Cuban (@mcuban) February 24, 2013
The Lakers have their one-time amnesty clause available in July, giving the team the ability to wipe a single player from their books.
The only four Lakers eligible are Pau Gasol, Metta World Peace, Steve Blake and Bryant.
Suffice it to say, the Lakers were not happy with Cuban's comments.ALSO:
