During the final minute of the Lakers loss (95-86) to the Utah Jazz last night, Kobe was caught on camera giving what many interpreted as a ‘death stare.’ If somehow you missed it, the video’s below.
At practice Thursday, several reporters decided to show Kobe the video of his supposed ‘death stare’ circulating around the internet. He was slightly amused (Kobe’s on-camera reaction is below).
“I don’t give a [expletive] how it’s interpreted. I’m too old to deal with that stuff, I really am.”
Despite Kobe having his worst regular-season start ever (1-4) as a Laker, Bryant also negated any hostility towards coach Mike Brown.
“I’ve been his biggest supporter. You would be frustrated to lose a game…It has nothing to do with one particular person…”
And, as Eric Pincus, Lakers blogger at L.A. Times, pressed the matter further, Kobe stood his ground.
“God people are boring….maybe because we lost, that probably has something to do with it.”
Boring or not, his reaction sure entertained us!
