LOS ANGELES - The Lakers traveled to Milwaukee where the Bucks handed them a 113-103 defeat.
This loss now puts the Utah Jazz just one win away from being tied with Kobe Bryant's Lakers for the 8th seed in the West.
Kobe was in a foul mood, no pun intended, as teammate Metta World Peace had to have surgery for a torn lateral meniscus.
Sporting Chance Magazine is reporting that Metta is very upset about the rumors that he had been seen with Celebrity Apprentice contestant Omarosa at the famed La Brea Tar Pits.
Metta told Hercules Confetti with SCM that he would not date Omarosa if she owned the biggest buffalo wings restaurant in America.
Kobe, meanwhile has taken up the secondary job of being a Laker cheerleader, as he has urged his team to fight on and to win so that he does not have to yell, holler, and scream at them so much.
Pau Gasol, who just came back from being injured, told Barbara Walters on The View that if Bryant yells at him one more time then "El Vino" Bryant may find himself injured with a severely bruised mouth.
Gasol stated that he will no longer put up with Kobe's spoiled diva antics and he vows that his days of being treated like a Spanish piñata are over.
