Los Angeles Lakers general manager Rob Pelinka once told a story about Kobe Bryant having dinner with Heath Ledger ... except that if the story was accurate, Ledger would have already been dead. One example circulated around the organization involves an anecdote he told a team meeting as part of the Lakers' "Genius Series" in March 2018, when actor and former wrestler Dwyane "The Rock" Johnson addressed the team. "Obviously, you guys saw that movie, and he's like, 'Hey, hook me up with dinner with Heath Ledger, because he got so locked into that role. I want to know he mentally got there, '" Pelinka recalled. "And Kobe used some of that in his game against the Knicks in terms of mental preparation". The article details some of the negative experiences staffers had working under Pelinka and Magic Johnson, including allegations of employees suffering panic attacks due to their experiences with Johnson.

However, ESPN is now reporting that no meeting ever occurred between Bryant and Ledger, additionally noting that the film was actually released six months after Ledger died in 2008. According to a source with direct knowledge, no such arrangement was made and no dinner took place.

"I've always supported everything he's done and will continue to", Pelinka told reporters last week.

It was simultaneously unbelievable and, in a huge indictment of where the Lakers are right now, seemingly par for the course in what has been a season of unmitigated disasters in Los Angeles.
