Kobe: ‘I Feel Like Killing Everybody Every Time I Go To The Arena’

Last week, the Los Angeles Lakers suffered their worst loss in franchise history, 48 points, and it also happened to be against the Los Angeles Clippers. The Lakers season had hit an all-time low and the locker room was flooded with embarrassment. Kobe Bryant was not around to react to the loss, though he did tweet out “Misery = Motivation” later that night.

Six days later, Bryant was officially ruled out for the remainder of the season. On Wednesday, he spoke to the media for the first time since the All-Star break. Only playing in six games this season, has Bryant been able to distance himself from the disappointments of this season? Do the losses affect him less, since he’s not out on the court?

I feel like killing everybody every time I go to the arena. I’m just on edge all the time,” Bryant said candidly to LakersNation.com. “To answer your question, yeah, I still feel it, probably more than anybody in the organization does, and it drives me absolutely crazy.”

What about his reaction after the worst Lakers loss in franchise history, which also happened to be against the Clippers? Bryant couldn’t help but smirk upon hearing that question.

Now I know what it feels like to be a Clipper fan all these years. That was my reaction.”

Despite having little part in the Lakers 2013-2014 season, the Lakers 42 losses have weighed heavily on Bryant. Wednesday, Bryant strongly voiced his dissatisfaction with the current state of the Lakers and the culture of the organization. Plus, Bryant said that he does not have the patience to go through another year of rebuilding, he’s looking for change this summer, and that starts with management.
