08:08 AM ET 01.17 | After LeBron James took his talents to South Beach, media and fans alike found it all too easy to criticize the Heat. [James] recently said the Los Angeles Lakers haven't had to go through the same level of scrutiny he and the Heat did two seasons ago. On Wednesday, Kobe Bryant responded as only he can. "What does it matter?" Bryant said. "What does he want, a cookie for that?" The Lakers will play the Heat on Thursday with both teams looking for a win rather than bragging rights about dealing with expectations and adversity. In 2010-2011 when James joined forces with Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh in Miami, the Heat started the season 9-8 before finishing 58-24 and losing to the Dallas Mavericks in the NBA Finals.
