Kobe Bryant: Lakers Will Win Series

Kobe Bryant doesn't seem to be panicking, despite the Los Angeles Lakers trailing the Dallas Mavericks three games to zero in the Western Conference semifinals.

Per Dave McMenamin:

"I don't know, I might be sick in the head or crazy or thrown off or something like that because I still think we're going to win this series," Bryant said after totaling 17 points and six assists in Game 3. "I might be nuts. ... Let's win on Sunday, go back home and see if they can win in L.A."

Following L.A.'s Game 2 loss, Bryant said, "If you want to make history, you have to do historic things."

I totally understand being confident and all - I mean, it is Kobe Bryant and they are the two-time defending champions...but "see if they can win in L.A?" Really? Dallas just went to Los Angeles and took the first two games of the series in the Staples Center. Clearly, the Mavs can win in LA.

Admittedly, I've never been a Kobe fan, so I'm really hoping the Mavericks just close this out in four. I guess maybe then Kobe will have meant seeing if the Mavs can win in Los Angeles next season.
