The Los Angeles Lakers are trying their best to be a respectable basketball team while mostly all of their starters sit out with injuries. There’s no Steve Nash, no Steve Blake, no Kobe Bryant and virtually no hope in Los Angeles. That hasn’t stopped the Lakers from stringing together some impressive performances, but they are more often than not on the wrong side of the scoreboard when things are all said and done.
Thursday night was an example of that, as the Lakes played the Heat close and made things interesting in the fourth quarter, but ultimately came up short.
Needless to say, Kobe Bryant was less than pleased.
The Lakers may be trying their hardest, but it’s clearly causing Kobe Bryant to lose some sleep at night when he thinks about how sloppy his team looks at times.
