Found December 03, 2012 on Menudo Bol:
The Black Mamba is pissed. And I mean pissed. After getting stomped by the worthless Magic (113-103) last night, Kobe had this to say about his teammates: “I’ll kick everybody’s ass in this locker room if it doesn’t happen. It’s the attitude you have to have. Metta is the same way. Dwight has it in him as well. Even though he smiles a lot, he cares a lot about this. Come hell or high water, this has to get done. Pau has to make some adjustments, obviously, to his game. He might not be posting up as much as he likes, but he just has to adjust. The reality is, I’ve adjusted. I’ve never run this many screen-and-rolls in my entire life. But I’ve worked on it. I’ve worked on handling the ball; worked on coming off screens and making plays. I’m used to being in the post much, much more. You have to adjust; you have to master what it is we’re trying to do here. Pau’s talented enough and good enough to be able to do that.” – Kobe Bryant
