Lakers News: Kobe Wants Accelerated Rebuild For ‘Selfish Reasons’


Kobe Bryant has never been one to hold back his opinions on any subject matter. When he said that he expects big changes in the off-season, he meant it.

Kobe knows that changes are on the way in Los Angeles, but, in an interview with ESPN’s Darren Rovell, he reiterated that he wants those changes to be sooner rather than later:

We’re all moving in the same direction. This organization is just not going to take a nosedive. But I think we need to accelerate it a little bit, for selfish reasons. Because I want to win, and I want to win next season.

Kobe will not take another losing season like the one the Lakers are experiencing right now. And with his career winding down, he wants another championship before he hangs it up for good.

It is also important to note that Kobe knows that he and the Buss family are all on the same page. Many wondered if there was some dissension after his words a couple of weeks ago, but everyone seems to be on one accord.

Kobe has come to grips with this season being a lost one, but there is no way he will accept it next year. Though Mitch Kupchak continues to preach patience, there will only be so much Bryant will take.

Even though Bryant admits he wants this process accelerated for selfish reasons, it is up to Kupchak to keep the future of the Lakers in mind at all times. Balancing the two will be of utmost importance.
