Tbh I feel bad for the true Laker fans like OP, because I have a really hard time seeing why any free agent would want to go play there when they know Kobe will always be trying to hog the spotlight, even in retirement.
Can you imagine how annoying it would be to go there and try to establish yourself as the team's cornerstone, while CringeBe is constantly making passive aggressive tweets about your game? You know it would be one contrived remark after another, trying desperately to make any comparisons to himself look unfavorable for the star player.
There's no way in hell Kobe is gonna let someone else get shine on the Lakers. He's too petty and jealous.
This team is screwed for a long time.
I'm sorry OP.
Gave you 5*'s anyway.
