Kobe Bryant on Leaving LAL: I bleed Purple and Gold

Hall of fame legend Kobe Bryant has been a Laker for pretty much his whole career. There has been speculation that maybe, Kobe will leave the Lake-Show to join a contender. Well, according to the man himself, that probably won't be happening.

Kobe was speaking to Yahoo Sports and stated that he has a loyal trait to this team.

"I hear the chatter of Kobe should ask out and he should go and play for a contender in this latter stage of his career," Bryant told Yahoo Sports. "But that's not what I do. I'm extremely loyal to the Lakers.

"I believe in fighting through the tough times as well as enjoying the good times. It's my responsibility to get us to be the best that we can be. It's important that we approach that on a day-to-day basis."

He also brought up the Pau situation, and brings up that he "Bleeds purple and gold".

"We offered Pau an incredible deal. I saw them put the work in. It's much different than in 2007 when I felt like they were just sitting on their hands. This is not that case. They were going after it and being aggressive. I will fight for that till the end. They tried, tried and tried and it didn't work out. I stand behind them 110 percent. I bleed purple and gold.

The Lakers are on an ugly 0-4 start to the season, not that big of a surprise considering that LAL really hasn't had any high expectations at all due to losing the all-star big man Dwight Howard and also losing Steve Nash to a whole season lasting injury.

It probably would be too weird to see Kobe wearing another jersey anyway.
