LaMarcus Aldridge tells the truth about Kobe

The Lakers’ first meeting with LaMarcus Aldridge in free agency went poorly.

Another example of Kobe Bryant costing the Lakers a star?

Aldridge says no.

Aldridge, in a Q&A with Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated: There was a lot of talk about the Lakers free agent meeting. It seemed like it went badly. What happened?

LA: I’m not going to get into details, but it was just a couple of meetings. The first meeting didn’t go as well as they said and then the second meeting went better. I’ll go on the record as saying Kobe was not an issue at all. He was a very positive part of the meeting. I’ve always had a very cordial relationship with Kobe. I see him all the time in Newport [Beach], and it was really messed up that [the media] put it on him when he was one of the best parts of the meeting. But like I said, the first one didn’t go as well, the second one went a little bit, but at the end of the day going back home was more valuable.… artner=ya5nbcs
