Kobe Bryant: We’re Doing Well

Kobe Bryant is always looking for something to improve, something to fix, some way to gain an edge, part of what drives him to be, well, Kobe Bryant.

But he seemed satisfied when asked whether there was anything the Lakers could be doing better these days.

"Not really," he said. "We are doing well."

The Lakers (16-3) have won nine consecutive games, eight with Pau Gasol back in the lineup, and their only close call came against Miami, when Bryant’s 27-foot three-point basket at the buzzer prevented a loss.
