Kobe can’t win.  I don’t mean as in Lakers getting a W in the win column but when it comes to criticism.  Last week against the Knicks, Kobe had a nice reverse layup and people said a younger Kobe would of threw it down.  Last night, Kobe threw down a reverse dunk and people said a younger Kobe would of dunked it harder.  Kobe just can’t win and I don’t mean as in having more points than the opposing team at the end of the game but the Lakers did happen to have less points than the Sixers at the end of the game last night but Kobe had a simple explanation for the loss.

“Cause we’re old as shit,” “You just saw an old damn team,” Bryant continued. “I don’t know how else to put it to you. We’re just slow. You saw a team over there that was just younger and just had fresher legs and just played with more energy, and we were just stuck in the mud. I think individually we all have to figure out how to get ourselves ready each and every game to have high level of energy. That’s all that is.”
