“Enjoy the break, and let’s get ready for a big push in the second half of the season,” Bryant said to the Lakers’ crowd before the game.

Bryant had the following message for his teammates as well:

This reflected the message that was written on the whiteboard in the locker room as the players go on an almost weeklong break.

The Lakers will have a tough challenge in front of them when they return to action on Wednesday against the Boston Celtics. With all the obstacles placed in front of this team, the Lakers will have the opportunity to show the basketball community what they are capable of.
