Kobe Suspended

Kurt —  December 30, 2005

Kobe’s retaliation flagrant foul on Mike Miller in the Memphis game has earned him a two game suspension from the NBA League office.

Kobe will not play in either game against the Jazz, Sunday or Tuesday. According to ESPN, the suspension will cost him a little more than I made this year $289,943 😉

Well, if you wanted to see what the Lakers would look like without Kobe….


As a side note, the Press Enterprise is reporting Ronny Turiaf will sign with the Lakers before Jan. 15, the day that non-guaranteed contracts become guaranteed. Devin Green, Laron Profit and Von Wafer are the possible cuts.

By the way, I passed along the note in jest but it may be true — Ronny Turaif may return from heart surgery before Carlos Boozer returns from a hamstring injury.
