Kobe Tells Critics ‘Shut Up; Let us Work’
There are a precious few out there who can tell a fast-growing chorus of Lakers critics to be quiet. Or, more directly, to shut up.
Meet Kobe Bryant, chief disciplinarian, ready to step forward with the Lakers having lost their first two games of the regular season before facing the Clippers on Friday night.
“Now you have Mike Brown telling everybody to be patient,” Bryant said Thursday of the Lakers’ coach. “Back then, it was Phil Jackson telling everybody to shut up.”
“Because I’ve won, so I can,” Bryant said. “So I’ll say it for him: Everybody shut up. Let us work.”
