This is what two blow out losses to start the season will do for you (Photo from Sports Herald).
According to Laker Nation reporter Serena Winters Kobe told Lin “”you got to run the offense. I’m telling you to run the offense & you got to do it.”
For whatever reason, Lin has had a history of meshing with star players. First it was Carmelo Anthony during his days with the New York Knicks. More recently it was James Harden the last two years with the Houston Rockets.
Kobe is competitive and is known to challenge his team mates. I’m thinking this is Kobe being a tough mentor.
Nonetheless Lin has made some comments indicating he’s unsure what his role is with the Lakers. You can read that comment in MStars.
