The Los Angeles Lakers might be struggling without injured leader LeBron James, but a former star isn’t worried.
After a blowout loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves on Sunday in which they had their worst shooting performance of the season, the Lakers fell to 1-5 without James, who suffered a strained left groin in a Christmas Day game. Second-leading scorer Kyle Kuzma also missed the game with a back contusion.
Hours later, Lakers legend Kobe Bryant responded to a Twitter follower and tried to calm the nerves of any potentially anxious fans.
“Relax,” Bryant tweeted. “Entire squad is damn near out. Were playing pretty well before that #gethealthy #lakerfam.”
