Kobe Bryant wasn't happy after last night's Lakers/Clippers game. And, he had every right to be upset. The Clippers jumped out to a 15-0 lead in the game and never looked back, eventually winning 125-101 at the Staples Center. But, that's not the only thing that Kobe was upset about. In addition to the loss, he was also irked that some of his teammates, like Dwight Howard (see the thumbs gallery), were spotted laughing and joking around after the game.
"I'm not happy right now," he told SI, "and hopefully my teammates feel the same way. You have to reflect on how important this is to you and what it means to you. After we lose by 20 or 30 points, we definitely can't be laughing and joking around."
We don't always agree with Kobe's assessments of his teammates. But, in this situation, we couldn't agree more. If you're Dwight Howard—or any Laker for that matter—you cannot get caught smiling after you get blown out of your own building by any team, let alone the Clippers. It just can't happen. Especially after the season that the Lakers have had so far.
