Kobe Bryant joined the Lakers’ meeting with LaMarcus Aldridge (which didn’t go as well as some thought) and recruited DeAndre Jordan.

But the Lakers didn’t land either star.

Instead, they settled for using their cap space on Roy Hibbert, Lou Williams and Brandon Bass.

Has Kobe made those newcomers feel welcome? That silence is worth a thousand words.
