LOS ANGELES (CBS SPORTS) - The Los Angeles Times reports that Kobe Bryant might not be the only person upset with Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban’s comments about the Lakers possibly amnestying the future Hall-of-Famer.

The NBA is debating whether to fine Cuban for saying Friday that the Lakers should consider waiving Bryant next season via the one-time amnesty provision. The Lakers would still have to pay Bryant his $30.5 million salary next season but would save the corresponding amount, if not slightly more, in luxury taxes.

On Sunday, after dropping a monster 38 points in a big win over the Mavs, Bryant tweeted “Amnesty THAT” in reference to Cuban.

The NBA could be concerned with Cuban violating tampering rules. Basically, you’re not supposed to talk about another team’s business, or contract, or free agents before free agency. They’re really touchy about this, because all the owners are suspicious of everyone else trying to steal from them, as long as it’s not a lockout when they band together to steal from the players.

Just kidding!

Cuban could get tagged for this, but what else is new? He’s already the most fined owner in NBA history.
