Also, apparently it’s not “collusion” when you’re on the team already? Ok so how did LeBron “collude” the second time on the Cavs? He went to a team with young Kyrie and a bunch of scrubs and an unproven Wiggins. “But but Love” yeah he wasn’t there yet.
no.. lakers management with kupchak/buss was VERY strict about not concerning themselves with players input. they did things independently
which is one of the reasons kobe was being driven insane a lot of the time
they also didn't listen to him when he said to bring back phil
he also told them they should run it through pau and not howard or bynum.
he was pissed when they got rid of odom for nothing. he had no input on that either
the bynum for kidd thing nearly ****ed everything up
