Lakers GM Mitch Kupchak on watching Kobe struggle this season: "Like everybody else, I go back and forth. I talk to Kobe about it and he says its timing and getting my legs under me and conditioning, getting used to playing with different players. And I buy in. Then I watch the games on TV and I read the paper and I remind myself that hes 37 years old and maybe its more than that. So I go back and forth on it."

Lakers General Manager Mitch Kupchak on what Kobe Bryant has meant to the Lakers: "It is impossible for me to sit here and describe what hes meant. Five championships, 20 years, 17 All-Star Games. MVP trophy. Ive watched him get hurt, play hurt. Weve watched the last three years with serious injuries [and] having to come back. Most players would not come back. So its hard to describe in two or three minutes. But hes a winner. And he came into this league with an unprecedented desire to compete and get better and be the best and he remains that exact same person today and thats with the good and the bad that come with it. But he remains that exact same person."
