Kobe Bryant On If Lakers Will Make Playoffs: ‘I Don’t Know’

The Los Angeles Lakers will head into Monday’s matchup against the Chicago Bulls with a record of 16-25 and a lot of uncertainty looming about the team’s chances to clinch a playoff spot in the Western Conference.

Before the Lakers took the floor against the Bulls, Kobe Bryant spoke to the media and talked about a number of different topics including his injury status, Team USA and if he thinks the Lakers will make the playoffs this season.

According to ESPN’s Dave McMenamin, Bryant isn’t sure if they’ll make the playoffs:

As of right now, the Lakers making the playoffs doesn’t seem all that likely. The West is incredibly competitive this season with 10 of the 15 teams in the conference currently sporting winning records. Currently, the Lakers are sitting in 13th place in the conference standings with only the Sacramento Kings (14-25) and Utah Jazz (14-28) below them.

Fortunately, the Lakers are at the halfway point of the season and may still be able to turn it around. Along with Bryant still on the mend, Steve Nash, Steve Blake, Jordan Farmar and Xavier Henry remain out with injuries.

Once the veterans return, if they all return this season, the team may see their chances of making the postseason improve.

    Hopefully they will make the playoffs. And then play their best ball when it counts most. What have I been saying all along? Get a healthy roster,make the playoffs,and play our best ball…….

    See this is different from last year. Remember when Kobe Bryant said “Lakers will make the playoffs” and everyone doubted him? Well even Kobe himself recognizes this season is lost.

    Perhaps its because last year they had a better record (and he was playing) + the western conference wasn’t AS hard

    Playoffs shouldn’t be a discussion. This shows how desperate the Lakers were for a couple of wins, and how caught up they can get in them. Why not take it one game at a time? That’s all they can do. Everyone with eyes can see the Lakers aren’t going to the playoffs, so when will this subject come to a stop? Lets just enjoy watching these young guys ball out this season, no matter how bad they can make your eyes bleed at times.

    Honestly if Lakers make Playoffs They aren’t much of a threat unless they have Kobe and Nash at 100%… It would be best if they can go for a top 5 draft pick and go for Carmelo.

      Melo? Really?? Wait 1 more year for Kevin Love instead
