Lakers Kobe To Fans: Shut Up

Lakers Kobe To Fans: Shut Up

Los Angeles Laker’s guard Kobe Bryant has told Laker’s fan to “shut up”. This in response to Lakers fans obsessing over how the Lakers and Kobe has lost 12 straight games counting the exhibition season and dating back to last May’s conference semifinals loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder.

The NBA has a 82-game schedule and Kobe Bryant and the Lakers have 80 more games to go until the NBA Championships in April. Kobe Bryant may have an argument to make since he’s wearing five NBA championship rings and is working hard on his sixth ring.

Kobe decided to tell fans what for in a Thursday post-practice chat with Los Angeles Daily News:

“Shut up,” a bemused Bryant demanded. “Have patience. Let us do our job.” He was just getting started. “I just, I don’t understand,” Bryant said. “The city here, for me, not trying to bite my tongue and not calling them dumb, which I kind of just did, but they’ve seen us win multiple championships here playing in an offense that was tough to learn.

“They know how that stuff works. So for them to be so stupid now and say, `Let Steve dribble the ball around and create opportunities for everybody. Let Dwight (Howard) post up. Or let me iso.’

“I won’t say idiotic, but it’s close.”

“Yeah because I’ve won, so I can. Mike, it would be a little tougher for him to say that. So I’ll say it for him: Everybody shut up. Let us work and at the end of the day everyone will be pleased at the end of the day.”

    Great Job making look bad by mixing up his quotes. Most of the Lakers fans are slowly and gradually un-motivating the Lakers. Shouting out "What are you doing" and "Come on Lakers", also calling out names especially Kobe. What the "Fans" are doing are reducing the teams motivation that help them strive. So ya it is the fans problem and they do need to shut up.

    What Kobe needs to is shut up and take a salary cut and get another championship quality teammate to even think about winning another championship or Miami is going to walk all over the Lakers. Everybody gets older Kobe, you can't do it by yourself.

    The fans are pushing and pushing negatively, they are expecting so much from the Lakers just because they won a couple of championship. Kobe Bryant has been thinking about retiring in 2014, he isn't like he was when he first joined the league in 1996 at age 18.
