Kobe talks about HCA and what it means to these Lakers…
L.A. Times: More typically, a question about the Cavaliers is met by responses such as this from Kobe Bryant: “I don’t really care. . . . I believe we can win anywhere. We want the best record just to say we have the best record, just for the challenge of it.”
If the Lakers and Cavaliers tie, the Lakers gain home-court edge because they won both regular-season games against Cleveland.
But they also have the harder task because of their schedule: The Lakers play only five of their final 13 games at home. The Cavaliers play eight of their final 12 at home, where they are 32-1.
For now, the Lakers will watch the Cavaliers from afar . . . even if they don’t admit to being interested in them.
“If their game’s on, I’ll watch it just for entertainment, but not really,” Bryant said.
