07:59 AM ET 12.19 | The Lakers welcomed back Pau Gasol, which may cover up some of what ills the Lakers -- or maybe not. The root cause of the Lakers' dysfunction has been consistent for 15 years. It is Kobe Bryant's ego, his desperate pursuit of Michael Jordan's legacy. ... Oh, the numbers look great. The results? The Lakers stink. You can blame that on the injuries to Gasol and [Steve Nash]. You can blame it on the incompetence of [Mike D'Antoni]. I blame Kobe. He's the guy stopping [Dwight Howard] from eating. Kobe is the guy giving Howard room to lose himself in his immaturity and hide. Here's what Kobe has never understood about the Los Angeles Lakers. It's an organization built to house and nurture giants.
