Lakers Player -- WE'RE NOT MAD AT KOBE ... 'He's Just Trying to Motivate Us'

EXCLUSIVE
There will be no Kobe Bryant mutiny on the L.A. Lakers -- so says a Lakers player who tells TMZ Sports the squad is NOT MAD at The Mamba for tearing 'em a new butthole at practice today. 

In case you haven't heard, Bryant went NUCLEAR -- cussing out several players and even talking trash to G.M. Mitch Kupchak

At one point, Bryant said, "Now I see why we've lost so many games. We're soft like Charmin!"

But one of the players on the team -- who spoke with us on the condition of anonymity -- said, "It's all in love. Kobe is trying to motivate us to become more hungry."

The player adds, "We are all good ... just gotta get better."

As for Kobe and Nick Young, who went at it on the court today as well, we're told ... "Swaggy and Kobe are good. Just two competitors competing. They always talk mess ... it's a part of the game."
