On Sunday night, the Los Angeles Lakers ended their seven game losing streak with an overtime victory over the rival Boston Celtics. After the game, the team was in great spirits as Nick Young, Jordan Hill and Carlos Boozer all crashed Jeremy Lin’s post-game interview.
While the celebration was entertaining to most fans, one person who was not entertained was Lakers star Kobe Bryant. In his appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Kobe was shown the video and asked if that would have happened if he were there with the team:
The look Kobe gave Kimmel after asking the question was far greater than any words he could have said. Kobe simply stared at Kimmel, shook his head and adjusted his tie –clearly unimpressed with the actions of his Lakers teammates.
Kobe is a very serious competitor and while he does celebrate when the situation calls for it, he would probably prefer that his team not act like that after a regular season win with the team’s record sitting at 14-41. For all of the Lakers sake, it was probably best that Kobe was at home.[divide]
