  • Kobe Bryant: If you need Lakers to recruit you, ‘you ain’t the one’

    The Lakers will pursue star free agents this summer and/or next. If Kobe Bryant had his way, the Lakers won’t roll out the red carpet for any of those players. “You know, the thing about this franchise is that you shouldn’t need recruiting to come in it,” Bryant said.

  • Lonzo Ball on LaVar Ball’s threat: ‘No reaction. I always just play. He always talks’

    LaVar Ball said Lonzo Ball wouldn’t re-sign with the Lakers unless they also signed LiAngelo Ball (and maybe LaMelo Ball, though LaVar wasn’t quite as clear about his third son). The earliest Lonzo could unilaterally leave Los Angeles is 2022, but he addressed his father’s comments now. “No reaction,” Lonzo said of his father’s threat.

  • Kobe: If a player needs convincing to play for Lakers, 'he ain't the one'

    Kobe Bryant didn't mince words when he told ESPN's Jalen Rose that only a "special" kind of player can be a?Los Angeles Laker. The future Hall of Famer, who played his entire 20-year career with the Lakers, was asked if he would help the team recruit free agents this summer, given the amount of cap space and young talent the franchise has as it attempts to climb back to a championship level. After laughing off the idea of "coddling" players (or "babysitting" them, Rose suggested) and boasting his rings and team banners, Bryant didn't hold back. "You know, the thing about this franchise is that you shouldn't need recruiting to come in it," Bryant said. "It takes a special person to want to play
