Yea exactly. He also said, being a Laker and having that on his resume was more important than how much money was being thrown around on the business spectrum + the strong tradition we have here in LA.
And I don't see why he'd lie about that, since at this stage of his career it's not really about the money, it's more about creating a place in NBA history, winning a ring, and having more opportunities after he retires, and there is no better place to get some connects than in LA.
