Kobe Says ‘Death Stare’ Misinterpreted
Video of a disturbed Kobe Bryant sitting on the bench late in the Lakers’ loss to the Utah Jazz has gone viral as the “Kobe Death Stare.”
Coach Mike Brown can be seen briefly and appears to be the target of Bryant’s anger. On Thursday, after practice, Bryant debunked that his ire was directed at Brown.
“I’m too old to deal with that stuff. I really am,” said Bryant. “I’ve been his biggest supporter. I’m really too old to be dealing with childish things.”
“Everybody here would be frustrated, losing a game. You’re angry. It has nothing to with one particular person,” he said. “God, people are bored.”
