“I don't know what to say -- if Kobe isn't happy, then that's tough,” Aldridge said. “I have been getting word that he wasn't happy with how things were going, and if he's not happy, then your chances there are pretty slim -- as we saw with Shaq. … Everybody talks around the league, and there was talk that he wasn't happy. “


Interesting how he recalls the Kobe and Shaq thing in the summer of 04 when he wasn't even in the league. :eyebrow:

You're misunderstanding what I'm saying.

It's very easy to go off of other people's hearsay, especially when you weren't even in the league during the time when this was all going on.

Everyone has a negative thinking about Kobe, and then when they get to the Lakers, they find out that he's not even really how others have portrayed him to be in the past.

It's not necessarily negative that Kobe is ruthless...he just is. Oh well. LMA pointed it out, so be it. There's nothing here.

Lamarcus does not know what he's saying. He does not know what went down in 04 and he does not know what went down this time. Kobe has by his own words said he supported Mike Brown. Kobe is a competitor. The guy hates losing and it's only natural he shows frustration when he loses. Unless he has any proof, his words mean nothing. He is speaking from the outside looking in.

Well, I actually found it interesting. He's saying he has heard things from players. Everybody hear is bashing him and going into "defensive" mode but I actually think its pretty interesting that he comes out and says he's hearing certain things around the league.

That's more "inside" then most of the stuff you hear on the forum. I assumed Kobe was against Brown (for good reason) and may have said something and this makes me lean more in that direction. I don't think any more or less about Kobe though. He probably was more mad/unhappy then he led on in the media though...and players around the league might be more aware of it. People talk at work you know...

alright LMA has a point, but who really gives a **** if kobe wanted mike brown gone but wouldnt say it to the public...if he did it would just tear up the locker room and make things worse than they already were! Kobe wants to win no matter what, and with the sqaud they had last year and the squad they have this year this is no excuse on why they shouldnt be winning! Kobe is the leader of that team and has been for years and is going to make sure that if something needs to be done in best interest of the team it happens! mike browns offense he was trying to run this yr was just god awful i mean not letting the best pick and roll pg in the league not run em? not letting one of the best players in the league lead his team on offense? The system he was running worked best for pau and maybe slightly for dwight...the system they run on offense needs to be ran for kobe and dwight first and nash and the pick and roll next! Kobe wants to win he's only playing 2 more years and wants to do nothing more but win these next 2 years and pass jordan and with the roster he has there is no reason they should be were they are...the end! What the best player in the league wants he gets period!!!!

Maybe no factual evidence. I think it was pretty obvious their professional relationship was damaged to the point of no return. Hell, Phil said he wouldn't return if Kobe returned, Kobe looked into playing with the Clippers...but it was indeed ultimately Shaq who demanded to be moved and was. Was it because of just Kobe? Who knows? Maybe it has as much to do with Phil.


But I don't think it's careless to say that whatever Kobe wants, Kobe gets.

From who, players on the Lakers? I did not bash him. I disagreed with him. We heard it from the horses mouth Kobe himself that he supported Mike Brown. Why should I believe LMA over Kobe himself? LMA is stating an opinion when he has no idea what went on behind closed doors. I do agree, I would not think less of Kobe either if this was true and I don't think any less of Lamarcus either. I disagreed with what Lemarcus was implying when Kobe has supported Mike Brown despite not being consulted on his hiring. I think like me, the Lakers FO did not have time to experiment with Mike Brown. It's win now or be fired later.

11-10-2012, 08:47 PM
Who is LMO? Any way this Lakers team is build to win now not later. Brown was not getting the team headed in the right direction. He was still singing the same old song. Dont matter if its Kobe, Howard, Nash, Magic johnson, Kareem, Mitch, Jim, Jerry, Ticket holders, fans, TWC, Shaq, Steven a Smith, espn, etc dont matter. Some teams are ok with loosing and some teams aint having it. Its not all about the $$$ for everyone. Some Players really do play to win and People like LMO just dont understand. Many teams and players are like that loosing dont bother them as long as they are getting paid. Lakers were worst than 1-4 It dated back to last season. After winning so many titles you can tell when the odds are against you. What LMO thinks does not matter he has a right to voice his opinion even if he is ignorant about what is going on. Its sad what happen to Brown but at the end of the day Lakers looked really bad and he was going to get fired sooner or later. His time management and rotations were awful.

No it's not careless to think that, there's just no evidence behind it is all I'm saying.

There's plenty of evidence that there was a huge wedge created between Kobe and Shaq that originated from Kobe and Shaq. There's evidence that Phil didn't want to return so long as Kobe was there. There's evidence that Kobe made it clear that he was willing to leave.

Did he run anyone out of town? Maybe not directly...but we can connect the dots. It was ugly, and while it wasn't perhaps more is fault than anyone else's, we know what happened. He was fined numerous times by the team for his actions during the whole "beef".

Shaq had a problem with most of is teammates when he was the star player. Shaq has more street cred than Kobe so that is why people side with Shaq. But if you pay close attention Shaq signal his own way out of LA. DiD him and Kobe had beef? yes but Shaq was not innocent. In preseason he told Jerry to pay him and he also said he was not being no ones Pippen. Well guess what he was Wades Pippen, Lebrons Pippen, and Garnetts Luke Longly

That isn't evidence of Kobe "running" Shaq out of town.. That's evidence of Kobe not getting along with Shaq or Phil... Is that the same as running someone out of town?

He was beloved by most of his teammates and coaches.
Some exceptions sure but for the most part he was well liked and he was always respected. (except by Kob)


Shaq has more street cred than Kobe so that is why people side with Shaq.
Shaq was the veteran and the main force behind the 3peat.

Kobe was the young gun who refused to accept his role and do what Phil asked of him.

That is what ended up destroying the chemistry Shaq worked hard to build with Kobe and eventually led to the destruction of that team.

Phil and most of the other guys supported Shaq because for the most part he was right.

We can agree that Shaq wasn't innocent but Kobe was the one who started the problems by not listening to Phil and Shaq and basically cutting them out mentally and telling them to f-off when they asked him to stop chucking.

He was too concerned about his stats and matching Jordan's legacy.


Well guess what he was Wades Pippen
Not really. He was almost as important as Wade was to that Chip.
Yeah Wade was slightly more important but so what he was old by then and past his prime.

That isn't evidence of Kobe "running" Shaq out of town.. That's evidence of Kobe not getting along with Shaq or Phil... Is that the same as running someone out of town?

The same? No. Did it play a factor in the breaking up of that Lakers dynasty? Of-****ing-course.

Shaq was pissed off at Robert Horry in 2003 when he played like crap in the playoffs and Shaq told management not to bring back Horry, but instead, to go bring Horace Grant and Karl Malone that summer and let Horry walk, which he did to San Antonio and won 2 more titles.


Shaq didn't get along with Horry. Horry also ranks both Duncan and Hakeem over Shaq. Even when Horry left LA, that summer of 03, he said that the Lakers were all about Shaq & Kobe and everyone else was like a side show having to put up with their crap.


Trust me, Horry was not a Shaq guy. Maybe guys like Fox, Shaw and Ron Harper were Shaq guys, but Horry was far from being a Shaq supporter. If anything, in his post-Laker career, Horry showed disdain for Shaq.

I never said explicitly that "Kobe ran Shaq out of town" (I don't think). They created a circumstance where it became one or the other. The breaking up of that dynasty was as much of Kobe's fault as it was Shaq's. MAybe we're getting caught up in semantics here, but LMA's comments aren't unfounded. He didn't say that Kobe ran Shaq out of town. I don't think anything he said was unfounded...nor do I think he took "a shot".

Do you disagree with this? "if Kobe isn't happy, then that's tough". I mean, Kobe still IS the Lakers.

All he said about the Shaq thing was that he wasn't happy? You disagree with that? Nothing he said was off base...not at all. Not if you take it for what it is.

Aldridge is right. No player is superior to a head coach. As a player, you should always play hard and do what the coach says. That goes for everyone, not just Bryant. That goes for Lebron, Durant, Wade, etc. No superstar is too good for the head coach. Even if the head coach isn't a good one, players still should play hard and give it their best effort. Bryant has a reputation like no other of always wanting it his way. If bryant really did have even a small impact on Brown's firing or if he wasn't giving his best effort on and off the court because he "wasn't happy," well then that kind of stuff is the reason why he has the reputation that he does....arrogance, selfishness, etc.

You don't think guys talk about that sort of stuff for years afterwards? You don't think veterans rag on Kobe after the youngsters talk about how great he is? Grow up. Kobe is great at basketball, but I'm not sure I'd like him so much if I was a player.

Really how could he not be fired? Brown could not even get a hold of Bynum. A player he was brought to coach. Really he had no chance with this team. To pin the fire on Kobe is stupid. This went beyond Kobe. Tv Analyst, fans, ticket holders, Magic Johnson, James Worthy, Jerry, Other coaches, his players was making fun of his coaching. How could he not.

lol you didn't have to be playing or coaching in the NBA to know about shaq and Kobe's feud..... it was a huge story that went on PUBLICLY for a long time. LMA is right with what he said cause we all know its true...

....but You're right, GENERALLY players/coaches would have better inside info, but not in the kobe shaq situation... BUT in regards to brown being fired, YES players do have some indside info, which is exactly what LMA is saying he heard....

The fact that people are still on that "Kobe ran Shaq outta town" crap is complete ish. The bottom line is Kobe wasn't/isn't going to bow down to anyone not LEADING BY EXAMPLE! Shaqs skillz and ability to dominate didn't mean squat long term because he didnt keep himself in good shape. Kobe has been about his legacy since day one. With that said, why on earth will he play 2nd fiddle to such when he is as committed to winning as the great one?

Shaq played himself out of position with his public call out of Doc Beezy to pay him coupled with constantly being out of shape. Shyt got real to management when they saw how Serious Kobe was about leaving and could you have blamed him? No! Because if the FO was willing to back someone like Shaq at the expense of a Kobe who is still balling in yr number 17 I might add. They would've felt it in the worst way..

Shaq forced their hand and got himself a one way ticket to Miami. Kobe, as he is in most cases, is the scape goat. Phil talked plenty ish about Kobe in his book. But in the end, there was/is a mutual respect for one another because they both take their profession seriously. So regardless of what anyone says about Kobe running Mike out ta town. The truth is, Dwight Howard could've had everything to do with Mike exile since he is the future. But its always going to fall back on Mamba. And you dumb bastards eat it up every time.

Because the change happened in one day. Buss went on for about 20 minutes in an interview saying Brown's job was safe. That's beyond the standard vote of confidence that means nothing. If you saw what he said, you could tell he really meant what he said about Brown being safe. 48 hours later, Brown is fired. In between then is the Kobe death stare.

Now I'm not saying I don't think Howard could have had something to do with it. But things don't change in two days because a guy who has been on the team for 3 months asked for a change. Things change when the face of a franchise asks for a change. It's not me speculating, it's just me using common sense.

Lol. Dr. Buss died? Last time I checked he is still alive and he is still the owner of the Lakers. What did you expect Jim Buss to say about his coach? Yeah, my coach is on the hot seat and we will make changes if we don't see improvement. According to the media and Mike Brown's camp the decision was made by Dr. Buss to fire Mike Brown. People act like Kobe calls all the shots when he really has very little say in personnel moves. If Kobe had say in personnel decisions then why didn't the front office ask him about the coaching options before they hired Mike Brown?

Just like I said earlier... the death stare was not at Mike Brown. Mike Brown was in a huddle with the team during the time out. So your whole post has no valid argument.

Just saying.

Kobe has been the biggest Mike Brown supporter for the past two years. You never heard him say anything negative about Mike Brown even after Mike Brown benched Kobe last season.

Let's just say that Howard got another coach fired, lol.

Each side will have a different version of what happened. They can tell other people their side of the story, but that doesn't mean its 100% correct. Shaq will always try to play the victim because he loves the attention.

That's only your opinion against mine though, it's not like your stating facts.

Because the change happened in one day. Buss went on for about 20 minutes in an interview saying Brown's job was safe. That's beyond the standard vote of confidence that means nothing. If you saw what he said, you could tell he really meant what he said about Brown being safe. 48 hours later, Brown is fired. In between then is the Kobe death stare.

Now I'm not saying I don't think Howard could have had something to do with it. But things don't change in two days because a guy who has been on the team for 3 months asked for a change. Things change when the face of a franchise asks for a change. It's not me speculating, it's just me using common sense.so Kobe eye fired a coach? I did not know he own the team. Jim and Jerry is not the same person. At this point in Kobes career Howard is more important to the team going forward. Its all speculations. And its safe to say LMA dont know what took place. Hell not Even Brown knew what happened. All he know at this point he is no Longer the coach. And the reason is The owner dont like the offense and had seen enough to let him go. How we got at its Kobe fault is internet fun.

The funny thing here is that Magic has come out and said how he doesn't think Brown should have been here in the first place, but someone calls Kobe out for not being happy. LMA needs to shut his mouth. Along with anyone else.

I believe the Lakers have a track record that speaks for itself and they felt things weren't going in the direction they wanted

The only fact that LMA and everyone on here know is Brown was fired by Mr Jerry Buss. The reason being The Owner(Jerry) did not like what he was seeing, did not like the offense and did not like where the team was heading. We as fans as well as player, Coaches, tv analyst, Even Brown will speculate from Kobe eyes, Keeping Howard happy, Buss daughter wanting Phill coach, 1-12 record, Players not feeling Brown and not playing their best, Magic calling friend Jerry to drop Brown, Brown defense or lack of, his time management, his rotations playing players out of their natural positions, Not utilizing his players talent to in his offense than the other way around, etc. But as Always the most popular its Kobes fault. Its all internet fun. If you read LMA comments he is speculating he dont know anything.

How is that Roy, Oden 1, 2 combo working for ya?

If you brought your head up from Kobe lap you'd know they havent played for the Blazers in quite awhile.

I see the Lakers big 4 is working out quite well already gone through 1 coach and Kupchak is already begging Phil Jackson to come coach again.

There are many who can't fathom Kobe and Phil's being on the same team again. Their five-season stint together was a Hollywood soap opera, and their battles overshadowed the three titles they shared. When Jackson revealed in his book, The Last Season , that Kobe had told him he would not re-sign with the Lakers unless they moved Shaquille O'Neal, it painted Bryant as the architect of the team's demolition. The conclusion: these guys couldn't wait to get away from each other.

idk but some of you guys should read phil jacksons book

I wasn't in the league and I'm pretty sure I know that's how it happened. Are you serious with this thread? Wow he said it was clear Kobe wasn't happy, let's make a big deal put of it. Anybody that thinks this wasn't partially on Kobe has to get their head out of their ***. The owner of the team has a long interview solidifying Browns position is safe and a day after the Kobe death stare happens and Brown is fired. Oh yeah that seems like a coincidence to me.

BTW you call yourself PSDs Stephen A Smith. With statements and threads like this, you are closer to being Skip Bayless. Just sayin

It was either Buss or Mitch who said that they have a special connection with kobe and that he knows if everything is alright. He went to he next lakers practice and Kobe gave him a thumbs up meaning everything was alright.

I don't think Kobe appreciated it when Mike Brown was hired, but within the last year he has grown closer to him. At first I did think Kobe might have been a part of Brown's firing, but honestly right now I think it was Buss and Mitch how bad we are playing. Kobe is too old to cry about his coach :cry:

Lol. Dr. Buss died? Last time I checked he is still alive and he is still the owner of the Lakers. What did you expect Jim Buss to say about his coach? Yeah, my coach is on the hot seat and we will make changes if we don't see improvement. According to the media and Mike Brown's camp the decision was made by Dr. Buss to fire Mike Brown. People act like Kobe calls all the shots when he really has very little say in personnel moves. If Kobe had say in personnel decisions then why didn't the front office ask him about the coaching options before they hired Mike Brown?

Just like I said earlier... the death stare was not at Mike Brown. Mike Brown was in a huddle with the team during the time out. So your whole post has no valid argument.

Just saying.

A) Where did I say Dr. buss died? Pretty sure I didn't
B) If you think that death stare was not because he was frustrated with the direction of the team (the offense which is put in by the coach) I have a tunnel under the ocean to sell you.

Just because you want to be right doesn't mean my post is not valid. It's my opinion versus yours. We may both be wrong, we may both be right.

To all the "You can't comment unless you've been in the league at that time" I guess that accounts for every comment possibly made by every PSD member.

LMA plays in the league, we don't and y'all are saying his comments hold no weight cause he wasn't in the league at the time lol.

People talk in the league. Even players that come by the Adidas facility talk.

So basically, you've just given reasons from your perspective as to why Mike Brown was not the right fit for the lakers, is it too far of a stretch to assume that you might share, if not scratch the surface as to why Kobe is not happy.

But of course your opinion would hold merit opposed to a basketball player employed by the NBA.

"He don't know nothin" but as a PSD member you do lol

Exactly what I'm trying to say. These people on this thread are acting like they are above these NBA guys and their opinions are facts. LMA knows more than anybody on here will ever know about what goes on behind the scenes. If you don't like it, don't listen or read, but don't come with a terrible excuse like, he can't say jack since he wasn't in the league then. What a joke

He's letting the players play their game and have them figure certain things out on the court rather than an annoying 4-eyed Potato Head calling out players every single damn time on the floor and making the players think and second-guess themselves.

Exactly man. And the fact that Kobe said he was asked who he wanted to be hired as coach probably just adds to my point, but he won't see that.
