Kobe Compares Himself To ‘Race Horse’ Locked In A Barn
[new_royalslider id=”303″]

After playing in only six games last season, no one is more eager to get back on the basketball court than Kobe Bryant. With doubts surrounding both the Lakers and himself, Kobe plans on proving a lot of people wrong this season.

In an interview with the newspaper Die Welt, courtesy of Kobe Legends, Bryant describes the anxiousness he is feeling this off-season:

I can’t wait to return to my duties on the court. I feel like a race horse that has been locked in a barn for months. I want to get out.

It pained Bryant to watch as the Lakers season spiraling out of control while he was powerless to stop it. Bryant wants to turn things around as quickly as possible and get the Lakers back to prominence.

Doing so with the roster the Lakers have put together this off-season will be another challenge. Kobe has complimented the moves the Lakers have made this off-season, but understands that there will be a growing process with this team:

Our team at this point is like a puzzle. We are looking to place the pieces in the right places. Slowly we will get results.

ESPN recently projected the Lakers to finish with the ninth worst record in the NBA, so expectations for the Lakers are relatively low.

But with Bryant leading a bunch of young, hungry players with plenty to prove, the Lakers could surprise some teams this season. And that is exactly what Kobe expects.
