Jackson, Gasol call Kobe greedy

Kobe shooting 

The Lakers followed up their big win against the Celtics by losing to the Grizzlies… but Kobe Bryant didn't really seem to care.  He went off for 44 points to become the Lakers all-time scoring leader.

But not everyone was happy for him.  Pau Gasol and Phil Jackson both had not-so-subtle digs for Kobe and his greediness.

Gasol was asked about Bryant’s new record and offered politically
correct – and believably authentic – commentary (“I’m proud of him; I
congratulate him”) before adding the kicker: “Now we can focus on winning games again.”

Bear in mind that Phil Jackson was a little miffed at Bryant on his
historic night, too. Jackson told the team at halftime, when Bryant had
23 of the Lakers’ 50 points, that Bryant was “forcing the action.”
Jackson also said in the halftime locker room, alluding to the 29
points Bryant needed in the game to pass Jerry West: “Let’s get him
over the hump, so we can play team ball again.”

I love how Kobe needed, for some reason, to break the record in front of Jerry West. 

Yeah, Lakers fans… you beat the C's the other day.  Savor your January victories now.  Your team has underlying problems that will bite you in the ass come playoff time.

    I was surprised Kobe passed up the last second shot to Artest.. I guess putting big man M. Gasol on him paid off at the end for Mem.
    Did anyone notice or mention about Lester Hudson scored 13 pts in only 12 min of play for Mem last night. Someone please send Doc and Danny a memo. Still don’t understand why they cut LH. The guy can score.

    LOL
    hahahaha
    leave it to the clasless boston fans to talk smack about other teams, especially other teams that are better than them.
    worry about your own team’s problems and report about your own sorry ass team who as a worse record than the ATLANTA HAWKS. … THE HAWKS ….
    bandwagons fans…
    respectable blogs don’t talk shit about other teams.
    even the laker blogs give the C’s respect.

    “Yeah, Lakers fans… you beat the C’s the other day. Savor your January victories now. Your team has underlying problems that will bite you in the ass come playoff time.”
    Same team from last year. Same problems from last year. What did the Lakers do, last year?
    And, once again, I’m not a Lakers fan. I’m a fan of logical sports arguments. :)

    The thrashing of a dying fan base always kicks up the most bizarre dust.
    KIck. Kick. Kick. Repeat.

  • PaulPierceWannaBeGangsta

    I seem to remember almost the exact same words after last year’s Laker Championship…..”savor it now Laker fans, Boston will be HEALTHY and READY next year!” etc……
    Would ya’ll like some sauce with that foot?

  • Ball sack

    the Lakers don’t have problems, they’re just not playing with urgency…They’ll be fine come playoff time….Kobe was the only one that should have shot in the game vs memphis…It’s gasol giving up 12 offensive rebounds to the grizzlies was the problem..

  • LAKER101
