The Los Angeles Lakers are winless through their first four games for the first time since they moved to Hollywood from Minneapolis back in 1960.

Kobe Bryant, a man not known for being the most patient when losses are piling up, is trying to reverse course a bit during the Lakers' recent skid.

"You don't stay patient," Bryant said, via Baxter Holmes of ESPN.com. "You stay persistently patient. You want those results today, but you understand that it's a process to get there.

"So you demand things turn around now," Bryant added, snapping his fingers three times for emphasis, "understanding that it won't be the case, but in order for things to turn around, you have to want them to turn them around today."

Bryant might want things to turn around right away, but an injury-depleted Lakers roster could still have a ton of growing pains to contend with as the season wears on.

"I enjoy playing," Kobe said when asked if it will still fun to play after injury despite the losing.

"But the fun is when you win."
