The Los Angeles Lakers are experiencing nothing if not frustration thus far in the shortened 2011-12 NBA season. They've been battling slumps and speculation all season, with the latest news being rumblings of an impending Pau Gasol trade. After the team lost to the Phoenix Suns on Sunday evening, it appears at least one member of the team is a bit disgruntled with how the front office is operating.
Seth Pollack at SB Nation Arizona was in the locker room following the game and recorded some telling comments from Kobe Bryant regarding the Gasol trade rumors.
"I wish management would come out and either trade him or not trade him," Byrant said.
"I'd rather for them to not trade him at all. If they want to do something, I wished they'd just fucking do it and if they're not going to do it, come out and say you're not going to do it. ...This way he can be comfortable and he can go out and he can perform and he can play and invest all of himself into (the team)."
You can see the full video below of Kobe talking to the media following the game. The Gasol conversation happens at around 2:35.
