02:57 PM ET 12.05 | Kobe Bryant, at least publicly, is still standing behind struggling big man Pau Gasol. In an interview with ESPN Los Angeles, Bryant said that he wants Gasol to "dig in" and be the player he can be rather than "sulk" about all the changes around him. "I want him to dig in and be determined, not discouraged," Bryant said. "We should go to him more on the post because he can dominate from there as he has to the tune of two rings. I'm sure we will adjust and figure out a balance when he comes back healthy." The Lakers have so far resisted calls to trade Gasol.

Forget the Pau that won two rings. He needs to dig in and play off of Dwight as well as he plays off of his brother Marc for the Spanish national team.

I'm gonna blame all the Lakers problems on Kobe. His ego is bigger than the state of California.

Well, he is the most well-known rapist in the state.
