Young, Hill and Boozer video bombed Lin’s post-game interview…
Los Angeles Lakers legend Kobe Bryant is currently sidelined after undergoing shoulder surgery, and it’s clear that the reaction from the current group of players after their win over the Boston Celtics earlier this week did not impress him.
Kobe blames media for lack of MVP awards: Bryant admits he’s bothered by only winning once.
Kobe wanted trade to Bulls in 2007: Lakers star wanted to leave that year.
Lakers won’t add veterans just to help Kobe: Kupchak wants the rebuilding process to start now.
In context, the players can be forgiven for enjoying their bit of success in an overtime win over an old rival, coupled with the fact that it ended an seven-game losing streak and finally gave the Staples Center something to cheer about.
However, looking at it as a bigger picture, the Lakers are a proud franchise built on a history of success, and their current troubles are almost to the point of embarrassing their former greats.
While that isn’t necessarily the fault of the players as the organisation looks to rebuild the roster, Bryant wasn’t impressed by how they acted after the game.
Point guard Jeremy Lin enjoyed one of his better performances of the season against Boston, but his post-game interview was interrupted by Nick Young, Jordan Hill and Carlos Boozer as they joked around and took away the limelight from the reason why Lin was being interviewed.
Although it’s funny to an extent, it is a little uncomfortable to watch considering the plight of the Lakers this year and judging from Bryant’s reaction on the Jimmy Kimmel show, his death stare suggested that he really wasn’t feeling it.
