Kobe weighs in on D’Antoni’s resignation
As usual, in grumpy fashion, Kobe Bryant speaks on the resignation of Los Angeles Lakers’ head coach, Mike D’Antoni, saying that he “didn’t care”.
Kobe has become Clint Eastwood from Gran Torino. GET OFF MY LAWN!
“Honestly I didn’t care,” Bryant said Thursday during a guest appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” when asked by Kimmel if he was “happy” that D’Antoni accepted a buyout of close to $2 million for next season rather than come back to coach the team.
“Mike was dealt a really bad hand in dealing with all the injuries that he had here,” Bryant said. “This is a tough place, man. If you’re not winning, you’re not going to survive, man.”
Now we wait and see who the Lakers hire as their next head coach. Will Kobe care? Do we care if he cares? Between injuries and an attitude that always seems negative, do fans even care what Kobe Bryant thinks at this point? It’s likely they still do, and since that seems apparent, we’ll keep reporting stuff like this.
