His teammates were generally shocked on Wednesday night when Steve Blake was traded to the Golden State Warriors less than two hours before tip-off against the Houston Rockets.
The Lakers made a money-saving deal, bringing in guards Kent Bazemore and MarShon Brooks from the Warriors.
On Thursday, one Laker spoke out against the trade.
Blake joined the Lakers in 2010, playing almost four seasons with the team.
In moving to the Warriors, the veteran guard jumped 14 games in the win column.
Bryant has been vocal through the years in favor of the Lakers keeping Pau Gasol.
At noon Thursday, the NBA trade deadline passed with Gasol still on the roster.
