Lakers News: Kobe Bryant Meets with GM Mitch Kupchak

The Los Angeles Lakers were ousted out of the 2012 NBA Playoffs by the Oklahoma City Thunder and the players had their exit interviews shortly after. From that point on, the Lakers players were essentially on break and could go on and do whatever they wanted during the summer.

However, Kobe Bryant decided to have a meeting with General Manager Mitch Kupchak a week and a half after all the other players’ meetings, OC Register. The meeting was set-up to discuss to the Lakers’ future and what had to be done in order to once again become championship contenders.

Jim Buss did not attend the meetings between Kobe and Kupchak, while head coach Mike Brown sat in for one of the sessions.

The Los Angeles Lakers did not consult Bryant when hiring Brown, but it seems as though the front office wants its star’s take when making rosters changes. The team needs to do something this off-season if it wants to become a title contender, and Kobe Bryant needs to let his voice be heard.
