Kobe did some venting about the Lakers season to various members of the media yesterday. But, here is the one quote I found funny courtesy of Lakerholicz.
Speaking of people being gone, it appears that Kobe is still a little pissed by the Steve Blake trade.
“I just want to get a phone call when somebody gets traded,” Bryant said.
It is clear that Kobe doesn’t think the current management structure is working. Here is what he had to say to ESPN.
You’ve gotta start with Jim [Buss],” Bryant said, who will be 36-years-old by the start of next season. “You’ve gotta start with Jim and Jeanie [Buss] and how that relationship plays out. It starts there, and having clear direction and clear authority. Then it goes down to the coaching staff. What’s Mike gonna do? What [do] they want to do with Mike? It’s got to start from the top.”
Good luck with all that.
