Kobe Bryant had a sharp critique of the Lakers after they lost, 103-99, to the Philadelphia 76ers.
"You just saw an old ... team," said Bryant. "I don't know how else to put it. We're just slow."
Coach Mike D'Antoni couldn't quite agree with Bryant's comments.
"I love Kobe to death, but I don't think we're slow and old," said D'Antoni. "We're a little slower and little older, but we're not slow and old. We won't go there."
There's no way to deny the math. Of the Lakers' 15 players, seven are at least 30 years old (Pau Gasol, Steve Nash, Metta World Peace, Antawn Jamison, Steve Blake, Chris Duhon and Bryant).
As the team prepares to play the Clippers on Friday night, D'Antoni noted the Lakers can offset their deficiencies by taking care of the ball and reducing turnovers.
