Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant has revealed that he has learned to deal with the criticism from the media.

A recent ESPN article suggested that Bryant had played a significant role in the Lakers' demise in recent years.

"It's not the first one and it won't be the last one," Bryant told reporters.

"Stay focused on the bigger picture and things are never as bleak as they seem at the time. I just kind of roll with it."

Lakers coach Byron Scott has revealed that Bryant will not feature in the remaining pre-season schedule as he looks to rest ahead of the new season.
