I think it'll be easier to entice stars to sign with the Lakers next season if Kobe comes back this season and proves that he is not done as an all-star/elite level player. Also easier to entire stars to sign if the Lakers can be somewhat respectable this year and maybe even snatch a playoff seed.
You want the star players to feel like they're coming into a solid situation which they'll help put over the top as opposed to coming to a dire situation where they have to be there is no foundation.
