I seriously doubt that has any real effect in negotiations. And well see if he's even here in a year... Hope so, but you never know... He wants to be the only top dog...
He's not going to leave the Lakers. When next summer they can offer him $30 million more than any other team.That's also not factoring all of the lucrative $$$ he will get in endorsements because he is now in LA & Hollywood.
Also the Lakers are the favorite and will probably win the championship this season.Yeah right he is going to leave for Dallas who will have cap space.But an aging Dirk Nowitzski.
As far as being "The Man" or "Top Dog". His time will come when Kobe & Nash, and Gasol all retire or move on in 3 years.
The Lakers then will clear a ton of cap space with those expiring contracts to build around him with young upcoming players like James Harden, Kevin Love, or even Kevin Durant.
