Kobe Bryant told the Lakers to 'beat the s***' out of the Warriors and they did

New, comments

From the box score perspective, Kobe Bryant's contributions to the Los Angeles Lakers' stunning upset win over the Golden State Warriors on Sunday were small: 12 points and three assists on 4-of-14 shooting. But in a new development, the real reason behind the Lakers' 112-95 win has been revealed, and we're crediting Bryant with it entirely.

When Kobe speaks, you listen. If he tells you to beat the s*** out of another team, you'd best get right on that. No wonder the Lakers won. The whole it-was-Saturday-night-in-Los-Angeles-with-an-early-game-the-next-day theory made sense at the time, but the real reason was sitting in the Lakers huddle the whole time.
