PHOENIX -- Kobe Bryant walked up to the postgame podium after the Los Angeles Lakers' 115-106 loss to the Phoenix Suns on Tuesday and launched into a diatribe, pounding away at his point so often that even the dude from "Memento" wouldn't need a tattoo to remember the gist of it.
Bryant didn't care about how well he played. His brilliance was rendered irrelevant by his team's lack of defense.
Mention No. 1: "Our defense could have been much better, I think."
