In their disappointing 102-96 loss to the visiting Memphis Grizzlies Sunday night at Staples Center, Kobe Bryant looked frustrated. As a result, Lakers' head coach Mike Brown benched the superstar for a span of almost four minutes. Bryant was unhappy about the situation.

"It's his decision to make," Bryant told reporters after the game. "He makes the decision. He's the coach. If you guys are looking for a story, I'm not going to give you one. I can't sit here and criticize his decisions. In leading this ballclub, that's something I can't afford to do. I got to have his back. I've had his back the whole season; I can't start doing something crazy now. It wouldn't make no sense."
