Kobe not worried about injuries, state of team

Kobe isn’t panicing about all the injuries. Here is what he had to say…

L.A. Times: Bryant was asked if he was concerned about his team’s injuries.

“No,” Bryant said. “It’s part of the business. I won’t allow my guys to even think about that or have the attitude. Pull up your boots, get ready to play.”

Bryant said he was “pretty sure” that he would play Wednesday night against the Mavericks.

He said he knew he faced a difficult flight from San Antonio to Dallas Tuesday night.

“It doesn’t make it easier,” Bryant said, trying to smile. “I’m not going to drive my [butt] to Dallas, that’s for sure.”

The Lakers have lost four consecutive road games, three by double-digits They have lost three of their last four games Dallas won’t be any easier.

“This is just a period in the season right now where it’s a tough stretch,” Bryant said. “But you have those every once in a while.”

      You sound like one of the many that threw foam fingers during the Christmas day massacre. Why don’t you just root for Cleveland or Boston since you hate the Lakers so much?

      So you are a ticket holder. Big deal you still sound like an idiot.

    • bostonSUCKS88

      Not only does he sound like an idiot, but he also sounds very ignorant. U dont like excuses? When the top 2 players are injured, that is not an excuse. U also sound very angry over this. U need to grow up man, it is just basketball.

    Cooler Heads prevail. I know it wont happen but Kobe Needs about a 2 week rest period to hopefully heal and get well. The rest of the team in his absence will have to step up to the plate bring their defensive A-game every game in his absence, and put the ball in the basket when on offense. The key for them though is defense. Some one has to begin to coach them on how to play defense and the offense will flow. We need to get Kobe healthy though if we can do that we will be fine.
