You're crazy if you don't think Kobe Bryant had any say in the Lakers signing LeBron James this offseason. The Los Angeles legend is always outspoken and always wants the best for the organization that he called home.


Kobe recently said that he did, in fact, have things to tell the Lakers prior to their signing. And they weren't very positive.

Kobe told the Lakers to clean 'sh**' up. He told The Undefeated "The last thing LeBron wants to do is come to an organization that has a lot of infighting, a lot of the stuff going on. I said, ‘Jeanie, it’s time for you to take ownership of this franchise. He’s not going to come if you don’t.’"


The Lakers obviously had a plethora of issues prior to LeBron's signing. They had front office issues, seemingly didn't know how to reward their best players, and couldn't control ​LaVar Ball's antics. Kobe was well aware of all of this and knew LeBron would want nothing of it.


Owner Jeanie Buss obviously took the advice. The team has been running smoothly so far and LaVar Ball has been completely silenced. LeBron also looks lights out, of course.

​​​Good things are to come for this team, with LeBron of course leading the way.
