Kobe Bryant rips Lakers management, saying team needs to make decision about trading Pau Gasol
PHOENIX (AP) ' Kobe Bryant has lashed out at Los Angeles Lakers management for leaving teammate Pau Gasol wondering whether he's about to be traded.
In a postgame monologue punctuated by a couple of profanities, Bryant says the Lakers either need to trade Gasol or come out and say it won't happen.
Bryant's comments came in the aftermath of a 102-90 loss at Phoenix on Sunday night.
Bryant says he doesn't want Gasol to be traded but it's unfair for his teammate to try to play when he doesn't know if he'll be somewhere else the following day.
As Bryant put it, "If they're going to do something, I wish they would just ... do it."
