Kobe Bryant: “We’re not a 3-11 team”
Sometimes a team’s record doesn’t necessarily reflect how good or bad they are. Kobe Bryant doesn’t seem to think the Lakers’ current record reflects their potential.

Kobe on Lakers: “We’re not a 3-11 team. We’re not.”

Is Kobe really of the mindset that his team is better than their record? Is he truly delusional enough to think that they should be more competitive than they are? I believe sometimes Kobe Bryant can have such passionate and fervent belief in mainly himself that he reaches a tunnel vision that makes him unaware of his true surroundings.
You’re 3-11 because you’re a 3-11 team. You’re supposed to be 3-11. The only exception to argue would be that the Lakers lost their lottery pick Julius Randle to injury on opening night and started the season playing without an injured Nick Young.
If Kobe believes what he says is true, it will take miraculous developments to be proven.
