Even the Warriors can't believe how bad Kobe Bryant is right now

The Kobe farewell tour keeps getting more heartbreaking.

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

To say Kobe Bryant has struggled to start the 2015-16 season for the Los Angeles Lakers would be putting things very kindly. We have all seen the numbers: 15.2 points per game on 31.1% shooting while only hitting 19.5% of his 7 three-pointers per game with a usage rate of 28.5.

Bryant and the Lakers both hit their low point in last night's 111-77 loss to the Golden State Warriors. The Lakers fell to 2-12 (the second worst record in the league behind only the 0-15 Philadelphia 76ers) while Bryant tied the worst shooting performance of his career with a 1-14 outing. Things are getting so ugly that the other team just feels bad for him at his point:

Bryant has been in the league for 19 years, and many of the younger players probably feel similarly to the Warriors players and most Lakers fans: that it's sad to watch Bryant go down like this. Pity from his opponents only makes this feel even worse.
