There's been a lot of noise since this past offseason regarding Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant and the effect his presence has on the team's chances to land marquee free agents.
While some have posited that Bryant's aggressive nature scares away potential top-tier acquisitions away (hello, ESPN), 2015 free agent Goran Dragic of the Phoenix Suns thinks that's an inaccurate assumption.
