Kobe singled out Ronnie Price as the teammate who got through the conditioning drills with easy "He can run all day"
They are under the floor, of course. He won't even gain a year of experience. And the loss of the rights is offset by the buying of loyalty.
So much easier for coach/trainer to give vets time off (like two a days) when they come into camp in fantastic shape like Kobe/Nash.
