After last night’s loss to the Thunder, the Lakers are now 0-3 since the return of Kobe Bryant, who had an impressive sounding 13 assists in 23 minutes to go along with a not so impressive 7 turnovers and 4 points. Despite the disappointing start for Kobe, he doesn’t seemed too concerned considering the drama the Lakers went through last year.
“I’m not worried about it, to be honest with you,” Bryant said. “We’ve seen worse. We forget kind of what we had to go through last year. I’m not really too concerned about it. I think our heart is in the right place. I think I saw a lot of positive things tonight; we just got to put it together for longer stretches. We’ll be fine.”
Kobe is now averaging 11 points 7 assists 4 rebounds 1 steal and 6 turnovers while shooting 39% for the season.
“Once I start playing a little bit more, that number is going to go up,” Bryant said. “The points will go up. I’m not too concerned about that. I think the most important thing is our flow and how we play and how we manage the game. My points, I can always put the ball in the hole.”
