Bryant working hard, not dwelling on Howard
Bryant said Wednesday his surgically repaired Achilles’ tendon is “progressing faster than anybody expected,” though he won’t start shooting again until next month.
“I could shoot right now, but you just don’t trust that the tendon’s holding yet,” the Lakers’ All-Star guard said. “Typically it’s four months minimum until the tendon’s holding and it’s not going to overstretch.”
“I’m not going to be able to go out there and do too much without the Lakers having a heart attack,” he said.
“You think once a guy decides to go someplace else I’m going to waste my time trying to figure out why that happened?” Bryant said.
“It’s just me. It’s just how I am,” Bryant said. “I have a hard time following people that, you know, want to beat us. I have a hard time doing that. Not to say we’re not friends, I don’t respect him. It’s just hard for me to do that.”
“Everybody’s cut differently,” he said. “He has his way of leading that he feels like will be most effective and work for him. Obviously, the way we’ve gone about it with this organization, the leaders we’ve had _ myself, Magic (Johnson) and Kareem (Abdul-Jabbar) _ we’ve done it a different way.”
Of the Lakers’ struggles during the past season, Bryant said, “It was a lot of moving pieces going around, a lot of things that happened.”
