Life of LA Lakers star Kobe Bryant is good

By Steven Beacom

We all know big time footballers are paid too much money, but what about the stars of basketball in America? Kobe Bryant has just signed a contract extension with the Los Angeles Lakers worth a mind boggling $48.5million (£29.8m) over the next two years.

The 35-year-old will be the NBA's highest paid player next season on $23.5 million (£14.4m) and in 2015-2016 on $25 million (£15.3m). Bryant said the new deal "makes me want to run through a wall for them."

For that money Kobe, you should be building the wall as well!
