The Los Angeles Lakers aren't expected to challenge for the NBA Title or even make the playoffs in the 2015/16 season, and they've started like that by losing their first three games of the season.

That won't be overly concerning to the Lakers coaching staff and their fans, but what will be is the below-par form of Kobe Bryant.

Bryant put in a third-straight poor showing of the season as the Lakers were dismantled by the Dallas Mavericks and Bryant wasn't happy with his own performance.

"I'm the 200th-best player in the league right now," Bryant said after the Lakers' 103-93 loss to the Mavs on Sunday.

Kobe was ranked No. 93 in ESPN's ranking of the best players in the league. It seems that, according to him at least, that number was 107 spots too high.

Bryant had an awful night of shooting, going just 3-of-15 shooting from the floor, hitting on only two of his eight three-point attempts.

"I freaking suck," was how Bryant summed up his start to the season.

Bryant is currently shooting just 31% of his attempts so far this campaign, an illuminating figure on just how poor his efficiency has been for a Lakers side that desperately needs to start using the ball better.
