"For me as a player, in terms of our fans, I don't worry about our fans. Our fans are consistent, and have been the best in the world for a very long time. Obviously the success that we've had on the court for so many years probably will make it easier for us to recover and regain a lot of our fans, in the way they love our team. The Lakers are in the D.N.A of this city and this community, so I don't really worry about our fans being mad at us. When you put on a Laker uniform, everything is all good. I expect Staples Center to be pretty excited on Christmas Day."
