Lakers News: Kobe Bryant Discusses Playing With New Teammates

Tonight the Los Angeles Lakers lost 114-108 at home to the Phoenix Suns in what would be Kobe Bryant’s second game after returning from surgery on a ruptured Achilles.

In Bryant’s season debut he didn’t quite perform up to expectations. So bad, to the point where he felt that if he had to give himself a grade it would be a ‘D’ or an ‘F’.

Fortunately for the Lakers and Bryant he performed much better tonight, finishing with a line of 20 points, two rebounds, and three assists. Despite the loss, it was great to see him show significant signs of improvement.

Part of adjusting to coming back is playing with a new set of new teammates. Some forget that the Lakers completely retooled their roster this past off-season, so naturally it’s going to take some time for Kobe to fully adjust to playing with this team.

After the game he spoke to reporters about his teammates and particularly the young ones via the Lakers official Twitter account:

It’s very interesting to see Bryant show this much patience when he usually demands results from his teammates right away. After back-to-back losses he still remains optimistic about what this team can do and where they can go. We’ll see how they fare on Friday when they travel to Oklahoma City to play the Thunder.

    The consensus last night at staples was getting rid of gasol. I agree.

    why not look for a trade involving Pau Gasol to Toronto for Kyle Lowry and Steve Novak. I understand they’re trying to preserve cap space for next season and don’t want to commit to salaries beyond this season, but Gasol is not coming back next year and it’s likely neither is Blake. Why hold off for a chance when you can have a sure thing? We need a point guard. it’s the most important position in the NBA these days. Lowry would be a good fit and would give our starting lineup some much needed quickness. The center position is not near as important as it once was, we would be fine with a frontline of Hill and Kaman/Sacre.

    That’s an interesting take–Kobe usually doesn’t show this much patience with his teammates? So, the rest of the team is the problem? That’s a semi-ridiculous statement with all due respect. They have played way beyond expectations, and Kobe is the one who’s working his way back into form and learning to play with them.
