"How do you know how good we think we are? We're fine," an obviously annoyed Bryant said. "Are we going to win a three-peat today? Probably not, but the (expletive) is not played today."
Los Angeles coach Phil Jackson denied being concerned about his team.
"Concern? It's way too early in the season, and we've got a long ways to go," he said. "We've got some guys struggling and need to get better."
