Mark Cuban went on ESPN radio Friday and suggested that it might be smart for the Lakers to use the amnesty clause on Kobe Bryant next year — cutting him so his ~$30 million salary doesn’t count against the salary cap.Cuban was just speaking hypothetically, and it was more a comment about the new collective bargaining agreement than a comment about Kobe. 

But it still became a big thing. 

Kobe (who always has his finger on the pulse) took notice. After scoring 38 points in a 103-99 win against the Mavericks yesterday, he fired off this zinger:

Excellent. It has been retweeted 50,000 times as of this writing.

Cuban responded well:
