Lakers News: Kobe Bryant Wants Lakers to Put Egos Aside

Kobe BryantThe Los Angeles Lakers finally won their first game in 2013 Sunday night, snapping a disappointing six-game losing streak.

The Lakers claimed the victory against the Cleveland Cavaliers, and even though the Cavs aren’t an upper echelon team, the Lakers desperately needed a win.

After the game, Kobe Bryant spoke to the media and he talked about what the Lakers need to do in order to make the next step. Arash Markazi tweeted that Bryant wants the Lakers players to put their egos aside and work for the betterment of the team.

Hopefully this win fuels the Lakers and gets the struggling team back on track. As of this point, the Lakers are not one of the top eight teams in the Western Conference and a lot must change in order for them to make the postseason. However, Los Angeles must approach the process one step at a time and with the utmost patience.

The Lakers will be back in action Tuesday night when they host the Milwaukee Bucks.
