Kobe Bryant Had An Iconic Reaction Without Saying One Word After He Saw The Lakers Celebrating Their First Win After An 8-Game Losing Streak In 2015: "When I Saw That All I Could Think Of Was You."

Kobe Bryant Had An Iconic Reaction Without Saying One Word After He Saw The Lakers Celebrating Their First Win After An 8-Game Losing Streak In 2015: "When I Saw That All I Could Think Of Was You."

Kobe Bryant is considered by many to be the greatest Los Angeles Laker of all time. Bryant was a true superstar, and one of the most lethal players in the NBA during his career. And a big part of his success in the league was his drive and desire to win. No one was more driven than Kobe Bryant in the NBA, and that's what allowed him to have the career he did.

Kobe was obsessed with winning and would do anything and everything in his power to make sure that he and his team would win the game in front of them. Not only that, but Kobe expected the same drive from his teammates. And when they didn't show that kind of drive, he would not be happy. And he wouldn't shy away from letting the world know about it.

We got to see this visible frustration and unhappiness during an episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live, where Kobe was a guest while recovering from an injury in 2015. Kimmel played a clip from the Lakers game where the players were jovially celebrating a win that helped break their 8-game losing streak at the time.

Kobe was not happy to see the players celebrating the way they were after a very disappointing run of fixtures. But hilariously, Kobe never said a word about that celebration, but his expression told the entire story, as he looked unimpressed and even a little disappointed in his young Lakers teammates.

Clearly, Kobe was not thrilled with the way his team was celebrating. Granted, the Lakers were not contenders beyond the 2011-12 season, as Kobe's age took a toll on his body and his injuries kept getting worse. On top of that, he had no reliable co-star, and was surrounded by young players whom the Lakers were trying to grom into future superstars.
