You just have to figure out how you can overcome the obstacle you're facing. I know that Kobe is a guy who does not give up, and does not accept defeat.
Here's how I view this:
After the Shaq-Kobe explosion of '04 which resulted in 3 seasons of horrible basketball and ridiculous garbage, I knew the whole time and had faith that Kobe would impose his will to the point that eventually something would get done to improve the situation. When Phil came back I knew that between he and Kobe, those two would eventually get their way, because they analyze every situation that could happen, and they figure out ways to defeat the obstacles.
When we lost the Finals this year, the first thing Kobe said was what the Lakers needed to improve on, but he could've easily said, "F it all this sucks we're screwed, the leprachauns are just too damn good." After each loss, I know that this current Laker squad is going to get right back up and fight for the W the next game. This season is a statement season, and they're going to get the best record in the entire league.
There is just no "off" switch to this team, they either do or they go down swinging.
We saw a bit of that against the Pistons. Even when it looked over, we kept fighting. I agree with you 100%.

I see faith in your eyes
never you hear the discouraging lies
broken is the promise, betrayal
the healing hand held back by deepened nail
follow the god that failed
