After Kobe Bryant and the Lakers almost defeated the Clippers, he sent out a tweet about self-doubt. He had the chance to explain himself to LA Daily News:
The NBA’s most confident player showed insecurity on a night he almost single-handedly carried the Lakers to a win.
After posting 38 points in the Lakers’ 107-102 loss Friday to the Clippers, Bryant tweeted on his new account.
“Thoughts of self doubt-Am I done?” Bryant tweeted. “Is this how my career will end?? I REFUSE to give in to these thoughts.”
Bryant elaborated on self-doubt following Saturday’s practice.
“Everybody has it,” Bryant said. “The way I react to it is different than everybody else. I don’t feed into it. I’m able to face it. I’m able to deal with it and I’m able to get through it. That’s probably the difference between myself and other people.”
Bryant sounded eager to see how his teammates respond to his message when the Lakers (15-17) play the Denver Nuggets (18-16) Sunday at Staples

Tweet The majority of 34-year-old men are sitting on their couches feeling the effects of middle-age creeping up on them. Not Kobe Bean Bryant, though.

That’s when he delivered a vicious dunk. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PzGolkfK2Ak&feature=youtu.be Chris [...]
Kobe Bryant may have said the Los Angeles Lakers were “old as s—,” but his 34-year-old body isn’t preventing him from making athletic plays. The Black Mamba stole a pass from Chris Paul and then dunked on the Clippers point guard to make a statement early in Friday’s game at Staples Center.

As I noted in my summary of Kobe Bryant’s incredible duel with Chris Paul, the following dunk was just one of Mamba’s many statement plays from Friday night. Personally, I think I most enjoyed the Iverson-esque crossover he used to shake free from Matt Barnes and drain a clutch 20-footer… but the dunk is definitely a close second thanks in large part to the shock factor involved...
Considering that only one team led from start to finish, Friday’s battle for Los Angeles was unsually captivating. Though the “visiting” Lakers were badly outplayed — they trailed by 19 in the fourth quarter and by double digits for approximately half the game — Kobe Bryant, who dropped 16 of his game-high 38 during a cold-blooded fourth-quarter rampage, should’ve had...

Kobe Byrant showed Chris Paul that age is just a number with an electrifying fast break dunk
LOS ANGELES -- In the span of one season, the Los Angeles Clippers have transformed from a two-man army, The Blake and Chris Show, into a deep squad, with one of the best benches in the NBA. Every so often, though, the stars come out at night and light up Staples Center. Against Kobe Bryant and Co., it was bound to happen. Chris Paul had a double-double in the first half and...

1: Bad to worse
Kobe Bryant was hitting his crazy fall-away 3-pointers. The Lakers had every recipe to make a comeback and get themselves a game closer to catching the Nuggets in a growingly contentious Playoff race (it is not too early yet is it?). Mike D'Antoni is saying not...
