Kobe Bryant thinks the Lakers are on the right track with their team


Kobe Bryant is without a doubt a great player but also has a really deep understanding of the game of basketball that involves many different things than just simply playing the game. He is still closely related to the team and observes what is happening with the Lakers squad that has played together the first 20 games of the seasons.

Kobe thinks good things are ahead of the Lakers in the near future and while doing it in a typical Black Mamba way took a shot at the Warriors and their fans at an event that took place at Staples Center on Monday.

"We'll just be laughing at all the Warrior fans who all of the sudden came out of nowhere," Bryant said on the Lakers' "All-Access"

The Lakers haven't started the season very well, but now they've picked up the slack and are currently 14-9 with a really promising season ahead of them. They won 6 out of their 8 games and for Kobe it was all about learning from the experience. He also credits Magic and their GM Rob Pelinka for doing a marvelous job

"They will figure it out. They have talented pieces and (Pelinka) has put them in position with incredible flexibility. They will figure it out. So, enjoy the journey because we'll be champions before you know it."

Kobe also touched upon LeBron's leadership in this times and what he needs to do to put them in a situation to win basketball games.

"It's a test of Bron's patience and also doing what he needs to do to keep the team's head above water," doing everything. That's not the recipe for winning championships by no means, but it is a recipe to keep your head above water, to give yourself a little breathing room and now it's going back to teaching how to play the way that we want to play.

Kobe played 20 years for the Lakers, once as a young player like Kuzma, Ingram, and Ball are today when you need to study and learn the game. Later he became a leader like LeBron James is now and keep his team in the position to win games. He believes this team has the potential to win it all and for us it remains to see if that will happen in the near future.
