Lakers Season Putting Pressure on Kobe
The message popped up on Twitter near midnight, not long after the Lakers lost to the Clippers.
“Thoughts of self doubt…Am I done? Is this how my career will end?? I REFUSE to give in to these thoughts. #strongwill #countonchallenges”
It was from Kobe Bryant. He didn’t step back from it 12 hours later while talking to reporters after the Lakers’ practice Saturday.
“Everybody has it. I’m human just like everybody else,” he said. “I think the way I react to it is probably a little different than anybody else. I don’t feed into it. I’m able to face it. I’m able to deal with it. I’m able to roll through it.”
The Lakers have been beyond vulnerable this season, falling to 15-17 after their 107-102 loss Friday to the Clippers.
