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’.
