The Los Angeles Lakers have high hopes of landing LaMarcus Aldridge out of Free Agency, but recent events may indicate that LaMarcus isn’t interested in joining the Lakers. It’s silly that these types of stories are starting to make headlines, and that we take notice, but we were suckered in and now we’re writing about it.
Seems fitting that some good old Hollywood drama would come into play when dealing with a Los Angeles team, as a reporter for the LA Times wrote on Twitter that Aldridge and Kobe ‘didn’t gel’ in the meeting:
Kobe was quick to reply and put the rumors to rest:
It’s unclear, though, if the Lakers are even farther away from landing Aldridge. There is a second meeting schedule and we’re waiting to see how this will impact LaMarcus’s decision. Adding another big name player will cost the Lakers a good deal of money, but they’re not known for shying away from paying for talent. In our opinion, anything to help Kobe get another ring!
We’ll see how this one plays out, but we’re rooting for a move to LA for LMA!
