Kobe Bryant unhappy Chris Kaman slept on Lakers bench


A few nights ago, the Los Angeles Lakers defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers despite not having enough active players to due so.

Los Angeles, down to their final few players after injury, had to re-check in a player that had previously fouled out of the game.

Having some fun in the semi-blowout, Lakers center Chris Kaman decided to lay down on the empty Lakers bench – a decision that went viral on the internet, but teammate Kobe Bryant was none too pleased.

“The last week’s been horrible,” Bryant said. “That Cleveland game, it was crazy. And then[Chris] Kaman goes to sleep on the bench, it’s like when big brother is not around, you start doing crazy [stuff]. So, it’s been rough. It’s been rough.

Make no mistake, there’s a reason Kobe decided to call out Kaman specifically there. The two have had their differences in the past – Kaman even going as far as to suggest he ‘hated’ Bryant when Kaman was a member of the Los Angeles Clippers.

There’s likely little else to come from the disagreement, though, Kobe has certainly put his foot down on the ‘antics’.
