Here you go, if Kobe's ankle keeps him ut of games he vows he will coach on the sidelines with D'antoni and goes over why he'd be an asset assisting him.

Kobe was asked what he'll do if his ankle keeps him out more time. Bryant: "F---, keep coaching!" ...

"F---, keep coaching!" Bryant said, as if it was the most obvious answer in the world. "You know what I mean? You put guys in positions to be successful, man. I watch a boatload of film so I know, I’m very well prepared. I’m going to continue to try to put guys in positions to be successful, as simple as that."


And on how he can help D'antoni?

A reporter asked Kobe if he imparted "anything specific" coaching on the bench. Kobe: "Everything is specific" ...

"Everything is specific," Bryant said. "Everything was just all execution related on what the defense is doing and just making adjustments and trying to take advantage of it."

Bryant said it was all "just reading the defense."

"Just out there seeing what’s going on and seeing things we can take advantage of and just trying to make sure I put them in the best position possible to be successful. There’s a lot of things where Mike (D'Antoni) has a million things going on in his head and Steve (Nash) and Dwight (Howard) they’re all out there in the moment, it’s tough to really see all those things. I can see them from the sideline."

Here's what Dwight said of Kobe grabbing the clipboard:

"We were talking about double teams, where they were coming from. Just what he saw and what I saw, so we just communicated on there."

Said Steve Nash:

"He was engaged and he wanted us to win so he had a lot of energy over there."

And Steve Blake's take:

"He was just talking about reads. Look for this, do this, you might have this on this play. He was very vocal and I think that gave everybody a lot of confidence to see how engaged he was, even when he was not playing."

Kobe made sure to point out how much the team is missing Jordan Hill, who happens to be the person he most recently followed on Twitter.

Kobe has to become a coach after he retires at age 45

It would be nice to see Kobe takeover as coach when he retires but I doubt he'd want to do it.

Hahaha he is not the best fit for a coaching job. He is the most impatient player of the leauge, he would go nuts and get in a real fight with his players or just quit :D

Coach kobe sit the hell down & wait until Fri to comeback. After stealing that Pacers win which most had as a loss even with you playing LA is ahead of schedule. Sun & Mon gms "should be won" without you. Get the rest & treatment & play fake coach role.

This just shows you how Kobe's IQ trumps over any player in the NBA.

I believe the reason why he is so successful in his 17th year is mainly because of his knowledge on the game.

Its honestly just AMAZING.

If Kobe was coach, he would be the next Bobby Knight. He might be the first coach ever to be close to the suspension limit.

I think he would coach exactly like Phil Jackson, honestly, except just a bit more demanding of his players.

He said he'd never coach a while ago. Stu brought an interesting thing about it last night - great players don't make good coaches, because they expect their players to play like them ..

Basketball IQ wise, it would be difficult to argue against Duncan being #1.

Duncan? Give me a break. And Kobe's basketball IQ is so overrated. I haven't seen anyone since Magic Johnson with an eye for the game quite like Javale McGee.

I think Kobe would make a marvelous assistant coach ala Brian Shaw.

He wouldn't be directly coaching but he'd be offering his insight drawing up a few plays and be behind the development of some of the teams guards like Shaw has done. And having Kobe do all those thinmgs would benefit ANY team and then after that he MAY become a true coach. But if he started out the way Shaw did I could seriously see that.
