Kobe: “They’re all just rumors”

In a video recently posted on Lakers.com, we get to hear Kobe address the rumors. It’s good to know the Lakers and Kobe are remaining focused despite this ugly media hell storm:

Lakers.com Multimedia: Jim Hill: Have you been keeping up with the radio, TV news on all the rumors surrounding you?

Kobe: “Yeah I have just to see how my teammates are reacting and making sure this isn’t a distraction, They’re all just rumors! I talk to my teammates and I make sure were focused. We’ve been doing a good job!”

    Foxxy is right. Kobe needs to develop and mentor his teammates and show his leadership. Kobe doesn’t show leadership when he scores 40+ points a game (yea he shows he’s a good player and we already know that), but to be a great player Kobe needs to keep his own head up and the heads of his teammates up and encourage them as their leader. Kobe needs to show leadership. He wanted his own team and now he has it – SHOW LEADERSHIP!!
