Kobe Bryant did an interview with The Undefeated and revealed that he played a role in getting LeBron to come to Los Angeles.
According to the Lakers legend, he told team owner Jeanie Buss that if she wanted to go after LeBron she would need to “clean up this sh*t here.”
Via Sports Illustrated:
“I’ll tell you, when [Lakers owner] Jeanie Buss came to me and said, ‘I really want to go after [LeBron],’ I said, ‘Jeanie, he’s not coming here until you clean up this s— here,'” Bryant told the Undefeared. “The last thing LeBron wants to do is come to an organization that has a lot of infighting, a lot of the stuff going on. I said, ‘Jeanie, it’s time for you to take ownership of this franchise. He’s not going to come if you don’t.’”
Kobe is trying to win executive of the year without actually being an executive in the league. How long before he starts taking credit for plays they run during games?
