LOS ANGELES - Lakers super star Kobe Bryant says that he has just about reached the end of his rope and he feels that his team is on a roller coaster ride with a lot more downs than ups.
He says that back during the summer when the team acquired Steve Nash and Dwight Howard that he would have bet $4 million that his team would win the NBA title.
Now, Kobe says that the boys in purple and gold would be lucky as hell to even make it into the playoffs.
Bryant has never been one to hold back as evidenced by his recent negative outbursts directed at fellow teammates Pau Gasol, Dwight Howard, Metta World Peace, and even Steve "Mr. Nice Guy" Nash.
A Lakers source revealed that Metta World Peace told Mr. Bryant that if he continues trying to put the blame for the team's horrible record on him that he is going to pick up the Colorado Kid (Kobe) and body slam him on the hardwood court.
Pau "The Spaniard" Gasol remarked that if Kobe keeps messing with him he is going to play a game of matador and bull, with him being the matador and Kobe being the bull...and as everyone knows - the bull always loses.
Nash, who is one of the easiest going players in all of sports said that Kobe better stop with his little bitter prima donna - diva antics or he will turn him into a pile of Jello with his karate.
So it appears that if Kobe keeps on carrying on like a spoiled little brat he won't have to worry about the playoffs because he may end up on the injured list.
