Kobe Bryant looked back on the 2005-06 Lakers today, and he was pretty brutal.Here’s what he told the OC Register:

“I almost won an MVP with Smush Parker and Kwame Brown on my team. I was shooting 45 times a game. What was I supposed to do? Pass it to Chris Mihm or Kwame Brown.”

Kobe went on to call Parker “the worst.”

We took a look back at that ’05-’06 team — which Kobe single-handedly dragged to the playoffs — to see what the guys Kobe trashed so hard are doing now.

The answer: Most are on the last legs of their careers, while some have moved on altogether.
