The Lakers are now 17-23 on the season after their last loss to the Raptors. Kobe was already asking for more help from his teammates before the game even took place. Bryant scored 26 points in the game. The Lakers are having a terrible season this year. The Lakers can’t seem to find the right combination to secure wins. Kobe may just be pointing fingers at the others for all the Lakers problems. The team just can’t get it right and they are making terrible decisions that are adding to the Lakers losses. The first bad choice could have been the firing of head coach Mike Browns. Bryant had issues with Brown’s coaching style and the Lakers eliminated Brown. The Lakers continued to struggle. The head coach they hired Mike D’Antoni hasn’t been able to make any difference to the team.
As a matter of fact it is D’Antoni himself that is reporting the team has lost its spirit. What is he doing? Why hasn’t D’Antoni been able to help the team contain its spirit? If D’Antoni was a great head coach he would have found a way to turn things around by now. The Lakers needed a bigger personality to take the head coaching spot when they fired Mike Brown. Why they went with D’Antoni is anyone’s guess. One thing that is certain is D’Antoni hasn’t helped the Lakers turn things around.
The Los Angeles Lakers are going to have one of their worse season in modern times. Kobe himself has to find a way to get his team fired up instead of saying he needs help from his teammates. It isn’t like the rest of the Lakers players are standing still out on the floor and watching Kobe do all the work. Kobe could be bringing his team down. He shouldn’t have made comments in public saying the guys need to help me out.
What ever the problem in L.A. is the Lakers and Kobe better figure it out and get it fixed and soon. Otherwise the team could end up on the outside looking in come the post season. Find a way to inspire your teammates Kobe.
