Kobe Byrant has two words for all the critics (especially Lakers fans) – ‘SHUT UP!’

Jersey Girl Sports fam the Los Angeles Lakers 0-2 start has everyone a bit confused. Well, if you're one of the critics, Kobe Bryant has two words for you--'SHUT UP'! That's right. According to ESPN.com Kobe is a bit fed up with the early criticism of the team:

"I've won so I can (tell people to shut up)," Bryant said. "For Mike it might be a little tough to say that so I'll say it for him: 'Everybody shut up. Let us work. At the end of the day, you'll be happy with the result as you normally are.' "

Whether you're a Lakers fan or not, you're pretty perplexed and somewhat confused by the 0-2 start of a very disjointed-looking L.A. Lakers team. The season started with loss to Oklahoma City and then to Portland --go figure! Kobe says the issue is a matter of learning the offense along with a new team that has to learn to work together:

"I don't understand," Bryant said with a smile when asked about the distress the Lakers' poor start has created amongst the city. "And I'm trying to bite my tongue and not calling them 'dumb,' which I kind of just did.

"But they've seen us win multiple championships here in an offense that was tough to learn, that was a sequence of options that weren't set plays, that took five guys getting on the same page and working together."

Kobe defends his teams lack-luster start sort of calling the critics, particularly the Lakers fans, stupid:

"They know how that stuff works, so for them to be so stupid now, for them to say, 'Oh, let Steve dribble the ball around and create opportunities for everybody, or let Dwight post up or let me iso' ... It's, I don't want to say 'idiotic,' but it's close."

Hmmm...those are strong words for an 0-2 start. Let's check back in a few weeks. Kobe may be right, but in sports, you're only as good as your last game.
