Kobe reacts after watching clip of his ‘death stare’ at Mike Brown (VIDEO)

Nov 8, 2012, 7:41 PM EDT

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.

    I would find it amusing as well. He has to be thinking ‘C’mon guys, seriously???’ hahaha.

        I don’t know why @manchestermiracle got any thumbs down. Kobe Bryant and Vanessa Bryant are still married. She called it off back in June.

    Lebron made Mike Brown coach of the year while Kobe, DH, and Pau make him look like an awful coach.

      Funny thing about LAL fans hating Brown – have to give props to LeBron for doing a lot of winning with that guy & no superstar teammates.

        Really? What did LeBron win in Cleveland? Out here winning is measured in championships….

        “Really? What did LeBron win in Cleveland? Out here winning is measured in championships….”

        At this point, you may want to settle for winning regular season games, since you’ve only won 1 this year.

        @hoodheisman If you really go by that, then Robert Horry is better player then Michael Jordan? And if you really think that stop watching Basketball because you’re an idiot

      the difference in LA is Mike is trying to coach offense, which he sucks at. He is a defensive specialist trying to teach a new offence to team that doesn’t need it. His offensive strategy in Cleveland was pretty much tossing it to Lebron. He would have done better if he employed a similar strategy in LA – get it inside to DH or swing it to Kobe – not that I agree with that strategy; but he would have won some games. Instead tried to do something he, Mike Brown, is not good at. the players never got comfortable with it. And we are not talking about dumb players here; this was just bad coaching, Simple

    Mike Brown should’ve resigned when Kobe declared it was his team. It has to be pure torture to have to coach this guy. That Phil Jackson is a smart dude. Let Kobe be a player coach like Bill Russell did back in the day for the Celtics.

    “Really? What did LeBron win in Cleveland? Out here winning is measured in championships….”

    Fact alert: Kobe couldn’t even get past the 1st round (or higher than a 7th seed) when he didn’t have any superstar teammates after the Shaq trade. They didn’t even make the playoffs in one of those years.

    Now compare that with what LeBron did without superstar teammates in Cleveland.

    Good point, Lakers fans are so quick to forget those seasons after Shaq was ran out of town by Kobe and before Jerry West “gave” Pau to them.
