Kobe working to stay fresh through season

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. -- Kobe Bryant has been feeling fatigued and his shots have been falling short. The veteran Los Angeles Lakers star hopes a change up his routine to help fix that issue and to also keep him fresh during the course of a long season.

And on some non-game days, such as Tuesday, he'll do almost nothing.
