Kobe Bryant might not know all the details of the financial situation, but you will soon.

The Los Angeles Lakers roster has quite a bit of luster to it after the additions of Dwight Howard and Steve Nash to a team that was already solid. However, the financial situation is anything but lustrous. 

L.A. hasn't exactly been frugal in recent years, paying star after star to don a purple-and-gold jersey.

So, how exactly do the Lakers stand from a financial standpoint?

This article will take you on a journey through the checkbooks of Jerry Buss and the rest of the Lakers management. We'll take a look at the current contracts, players who are overpaid or underpaid, expiring contracts and trade chips, the financial situation for the 2013-14 season and the biggest decision that must be made in the near future.

Finally, you'll see the overall grade for the Lakers' money management.  

Note: Contract information was gathered from Spotrac.com, a sports contract database.
