Kobe certainly isn’t above playing the mental games to get his team fired up for the postseason, as SRI reports. He better hope his teammates haven’t found out that some in the media think they’ll sweep OKC: “On what he thinks the identity of the Lakers is heading into the playoffs: ‘Underdogs. That’s what it feels like because we have been playing so inconsistently. You start hearing the rumblings and the chirping about us being beatable and teams wanting to see us in the first round and things like that. You start hearing those things and it kinda puts you into that mindset.”’
