After the Lakers practiced in El Segundo on Thursday, Kobe Bryant was asked about his supposed “death stare” at head coach Mike Brown that came as L.A. was getting rolled in Utah at the hands of the Jazz for the team’s fourth loss in five tries to open the season.
The glare is above, and Bryant is clearly angry. Tough to discern whether all that anger is directed at Brown, though, or if it was just a build-up of what’s been going on during the Lakers’ tumultuous first five games.
Either way, Bryant was asked about it, and as you might have guessed he seemed pretty dismissive about the whole thing, mainly because he’s been through this type of nonsense many, many times before.
That’s Eric Pincus of the L.A. Times asking the questions, and you can see Bryant’s reaction to the so-called “death stare” clip near the end of the video below, captured by Serena Winters of Lakers Nation — clearly, he finds the level of drama associated with this team pretty amusing.
