Amidst the controversial “Death Stare” video circling online that features Bryant scowling at his head coach, Kobe says he still supports Mike Brown.
In a recent press release, Bryant spoke out about the video and the way it was interpreted by fans.
I don’t give a (expletive) how it was interpreted,” Bryant said. “It doesn’t really matter to me. I’m too old to deal with that stuff. I really am. I’ve been (Brown’s) biggest supporter.”
Brown has been under a lot of pressure recently after the Lakers earned their fourth loss in five games to start the year. Fans have criticized the new Princeton Offense that the Lakers have implemented this season. Under the new offense, the Lakers have averaged just 97.2 points per game, which is 15th in the league.
This has been Bryant’s worst start to a season in his 17-year career.
Bryant continued to voice his frustration about the attention the video has received.
“God, people are bored,” he exclaimed.
