If most of you agree with what Kobe says then reading what he says will calm you down.

Sports Radio Interviews: Kobe Bryant joined ESPN 710 in Los Angeles with Mason and Ireland to talk about the play of the Lakers this season, dealing with the injury that he is dealing with, what it would mean to him to break Jerry West’s scoring record and whether or not he wants the team to make a trade before the deadline.

A sample of what Kobe was asked and how he responded. Probably the main question asked.

“Should the Lakers make a trade before the deadline?”

“No. I love my guys. I love my guys. I love how we’re built and I love what we have and I’d love a chance to repeat with the group that we have here right now. Obviously Mitch (Kupchak) has to do his job and I won’t get in the way of that but from my personal standpoint, I love the group and crew that we have.”

“Why has Ron Artest been struggling alot this season?”

“Everybody talks about me playing through injuries but he’s as tough as I am. He’s playing through injuries as well. He’s got two fingers that are jacked up and he’s got plantar fasciitis in both of his feet. He’s playing through some tough things right now. It’s just a matter of him playing, contributing where he can and getting healthy at the same time.”

    what did you expect kobe to say, “yeah trade most of my guys we need a damn good pg already.” As the leader he’s not gonna bash his team. STupid question to ask kobe.

  • done

    Anyone who says Kobe is the greatest Laker ever doesn’t know jack shit about Lakers basketball.

    Hate these bandwagon fans.

    • done

      And for the record, Kobe is just being politically correct. I am sure he would love a trade to happen again like he does every other year when they go downhill and I’m sure he regrets Traitor $$ Ariza’s departure.

        kobe is not the greatest laker (i understand that) but he is the best since magic thats for sure

  • berkyberks

    kobe loves ariza! he want’s those kind of guys never give-up, he likes ron as well you ask him if he likes to play w/ odom? honestly!

  • berkyberks

    by the way passing jerry means the G.L.O.A.T. (greatest laker of all time).12 3’s,81points, 62 in 3 qrtrs. what else more? forget the MVP stern don’t like KOBE!

  • drive-for-16th

    fuck david stern, and fuk these stupid ass nba mothafukas, they dont recognize real greatness.

    Kobe isn’t the greatest Laker of all time ‘yet’. But after all is said and done, he will be. Magic characterized it perfectly: if Kobe wins 2 more rings, then yes, he is the greatest Laker ever. (Magic has 5 rings). And Magic said that without any jealousy. I’m sure he’d rather have Kobe be the greatest ‘player’ of all time, than MJ (Magic’s contemporary).

  • Robert

    As leader of the team, Kobe has to say he’s happy with his team. This interview was before the losses (to Memphis, and Denver). If Kobe or Phil express any type of unhappiness, the team falls apart. As Kobe mentioned, having Pau there gives everyone the ‘correct’ position. If there is one out of place, the team doesn’t do as well.
    .
    Still … if they get another PG (add one to the roster), one that can defend, they will be in better shape. Then the other PG’s can fight for position, and hence play better. The Lakers offense isn’t bad, but for the playoffs, remember that “Defense Wins Games”.

      • drive-for-16th

        lebron copies Kobe, He even said on an interview that he watches kobe play and learns his moves. So fuk you “a million misses”

  • LakersBabe

    Kobe is in the top 5. We have Magic, West, Kareem, and Mikan as well. When all is said and done I think he will be #2 after Magic.

    Magic is the best Laker player and one of the all time greats.

  • LakersBabe

    The Lakers definitely miss Ariza. Imagine if both Artest and Ariza were on the squad? But we can console ourselves, we have Sasha and Luke……

  • http://57.amklac a Million Misses!

    • http://TheLakersNation pwned
