Why Is Kobe Bryant Happy About Losing?

With the latest loss to the Clippers, Kobe Bryant sees even more hope.

Really? Is it unfailing optimism? Is it a lion’s heart? Is it stupidity?

Actually, Bryant likes what he sees in the development of the players around him. He also likes what he sees in himself, still showing spectacular moves on the court, despite the injuries and the age.

But the Lakers have the worst record in the Western Conference. They have yet to win a game this season. They are struggling.

I have to give credit to a team that can remain so optimistic despite the disappointments. They should be able to get things together soon, and at least qualify for eighth seed and make the playoffs.
