Maybe he likes living in Charlotte.  When it's that much money it isn't always just about the cash

find me one professional athlete as a kid who didn't dream of winning an NBA championship, Superbowl, World Cup, Olympic Gold Medal etc. 

At some point your drive to win matters and if Charlotte isn't that situation then you leave a la Kevin Durant leaving Oklahoma City for the Warriors.

Dude has never won a playoff series. I think he is the one who is most likely to team up with AD and Bron.

he's never won a game vs lebron in his career lmao

And the reality is not everyone is going to do it.   We've seen guys stay in a spot where they weren't likely to win because they wanted to be there.   The hometown discount is a real thing.  Doesn't mean it will apply here just that it has happened.  Also, some people would rather be "the guy" than the "third guy" while others are fine in a supporting role.  All players are different and, maybe, he believes that he could eventually win in Charlotte.

they arent winning in charlotte

LMAO yo it is crazy! Charlotte did win finally vs Bron a couple of years ago..... BUT Kemba was not playing lmao. Poor guy.

RIP Kobe :( 

 

 

Such a shock, Rip Kobe and Giana 

Today has been rough for me. RIP

Shocking and heartbreaking.

I was crying all day yesterday.. still in shock. That father/daughter relationship is special and it just breaks my heart..

Honestly as an early twenties guy who's a big sports fan(not even basketball, but I grew up watching sportscemtre every morning before school) this has to be the biggest celebrity death for me in my life. I was actually alright for the last few hours of work yesterday but coming home and seeing the impact of his death online made me break down for sure. Like I was literally looking at everyone who I follow on social media to see their reaction and basically everyone had a reaction, even these MTV people like Nelson, Cory, Aeneas and Da"Vonne. Seemed like an entire city, country and world was in shock yesterday. Crazy that the Grammys were in his house last night at the staples centre, wonderful job by Alicia Keys honouring him and still making the night enjoyable. Will be interesting to see what happens at the next lakers game, as well as all star weekend coming up...

Hope everyone's doing okay today

I’ve never heard of a sadder story. Prayers for vanessa and their other daughters

also prayers to the other families involved

Kobe you got me crying like a bitch for an entire 24 hours.
