Was Kobe talking about the Lakers or Celtics?
After the Lakers 103-99 home loss to the Sixers last night, Kobe Bryant had this to say about his team's performance:
We're old as $h!t. What do you want? We just got to figure out how to play when we don't have that energy. We got to change things up a little bit defensively. We got to figure out what we want to do offensively, figure out what we want to do on nights when we don't have those legs or have that energy. You just saw an old damn team. I don't know how else to put it to you. We're just slow. You saw a team over there that was just younger and just had fresher legs and just played with more energy, and we were just stuck in the mud. I think individually we all have to figure out how to get ourselves ready each and every game to have a high level of energy. That's all that is.
It sounds exactly like how I feel watching the Celtics lately. If Kevin Garnett had said the same thing word for word following the Sacramento game...
