Kobe Bryant on Beating the Warriors: Stranger Things Have Happened

by November 23, 2015

All that stands between the 15-0 Golden State Warriors and the greatest start in NBA history, are Kobe Bryant and his woeful Los Angeles Lakers (2-11).

Bryant, ever-confident despite all the odds being completely in the Dubs’ favor, says that the Warriors aren’t guaranteed a W in their matchup with the Lakers tomorrow night.

Kobe, the newly self-proclaimed Mr. Ball Movement, shot 6 of 22 from the field and added four assists in his team’s latest demoralizing loss Sunday, a 107-93 thumping at the hands of the visiting Portland Trail Blazers.


“I’ve seen stranger things happen,” Bryant said Sunday after his team’s 107-93 loss to the Portland Trail Blazers at Staples Center here. “We’ve been playing like s—. We might go up there and we might play like gangbusters up there. You never know.”


Lakers coach Byron Scott was asked for his thought on the matchup. He laughed. […] “That’s my thought right now,” Scott said. “They’re the best team I’ve seen in the league and it’s not close … . They’re the best team I’ve seen in a while.”


“Basically I look at them as a fan, when I watch them play,” Scott said. “Unfortunately I don’t have that luxury Tuesday. I love watching them play because they do all the things we talk about. They share the ball. They play for one another. They play as a team.”
