Kobe Bryant Curses at Lakers Teammates (Video)

| by Michael Allen

The Los Angeles Lakers are currently at the bottom of the Western Conference in the NBA with a 6-16 record.

Lakers star Kobe Bryant apparently couldn't hold in his disgust during his first full practice with the team in two weeks.

Today's practice was open to the press, and ESPN reporter Arash Markazi got some of the profane-filled moments on video (below).

"You m-----f------ are soft like Charmin in this m-----f-----. God-----, is this the type of s--- that's going on in these practices? Now I see why we've lost 20 f------- games. We're soft like Charmin. We're soft like s---," said Bryant, noted ESPN.

Bryant also razzed fellow teammate Jeremy Lin, "This m-----f----- don't got s---. He ain't got s--- right now. Shoot! Shoot!"

CBS Los Angeles notes that Bryant fired off one at Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak, "I'm supposed to practice and get better, Mitch. I'm supposed to practice and get better. These m-----f------ ain't doing s--- for me."

Lakers coach Byron Scott didn't seem to mind the star player's expletives. He told ESPN, "Any time (No.) 24 practices, it's going to be an intense practice. I think he brings out the best in the guys. It's a good way to start the trip ... I don't think anything irritated him. I just think he did a great job of getting everyone else fired up. He's always fired up. That's the great thing about him."

The Charmin tissue company had some fun with Kobe's antics and tweeted, "You know, in terms of toilet paper, saying you're as soft as Charmin is a good thing. In basketball? Not so much. #tweetfromtheseat"
