MANILA, Philippines – NBA superstar Kobe Bryant had a simple explanation for the team’s record of 15 wins and 16 losses this season.
Bryant said the Lakers lacked energy because they are an old team.
On Wednesday, the Philadelphia 76ers claimed a 103-99 win over the Lakers despite 36 points from Bryant.
Bryant said they hope to change things defensively and figure out what to do when they do not have fresh legs.
The two-time Finals MVP believes the Lakers can still make it to the playoffs, but said they need to do a lot of fighting just to catch up. -- Mornings @ ANC, January 3, 2013
