One more reason the Cavaliers did not want to pay him. Kobe needed surgery on his finger in a preseason game, he played the year and had the surgery after the season. He taped his fingers together. This guy is a pussy, he has no problem taking the big money, but won't man up and earn it.

Kobe was also the only chance his team had at making the playoffs.
Better to have a healthy role-player come playoff time than one who hinders the team over the next 6 months.
Cleveland has no shortage of replacements here.

George Karl said the injury had something to do with a lack of a father...

You're comparing a legend to a POS in comparison to Kobe. Think about that. No need to bash POS like that.
