Lakers forward Vladimir Radmanovic said Friday he made up a story about slipping on a patch of ice to cover up the that he was snowboarding for the first time. And that, apparently, was in violation of his basketball contract.
“First of all I’d like to apologize to my teammates, coaches, Lakers management and Lakers fans for initially lying about the circumstances of the injury to my shoulder last weekend. I’d like to, however, come forward and set the record straight at this time. The truth is that I hurt myself in a fall while snowboarding.
Vladi knows the truth: you can’t let a contract stop the stoke.
