08:06 AM ET 01.02 | A New Year only marks the passing of more time. Following the Los Angeles Lakers' 103-99 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers on New Year's Day, Kobe Bryant had a simple answer for what has been plaguing the 15-16 Lakers this season: their age. "'Cause we're old as s---," said the 34-year-old Bryant when asked why a lack of energy has been a problem for L.A. all season. "What do you want? We just got to figure out how to play when we don't have that energy. We got to change things up a little bit defensively. We got to figure out what we want to do offensively, figure out what we want to do on nights when we don't have those legs or have that energy." ... "You just saw an old damn team," Bryant continued. "I don't know how else to put it to you."

Kobe being Kobe...and honest too. The Lakers are old...and only getting older as the season goes along. Father Time has a way of catching up with everyone...including Kobe Bryant. Good morning FN and Happy New Year!

I see somma ya would like to defer blame to Howard rather than admit to the fact that as wannabe Jordan alluded to is that they the Lakers "are old as $hiitt". I however, can't believe that niether Kobe or you Kobenatics thinks that he's really all that old. It's not becoming of him, and most certainly not of the multitudes of Kobenatics.

I guess this super savior "old **** Nash" is not workin out the way youz and Dumbtoni thought so, huh? Listen up and let Apple powercheck you on a little somp'em somp'em, the Lakers and and Kobe's **** aren't going anywhere. Apple!
