Time changed to 12:45 due to his rehab going a little longer today.

On when he'll play, @kobebryant: "I'm shooting for November or December."


Kobe on how he's feeling: "I think its gonna be more than fine...Now it actually feels better than it did before I got hurt"


Kobe on keeping Dwight on LAL: "Those guys are hard to find, they don't grow on trees. You have to be able to keep them & lock him in."


Kobe isn't running yet but tells @LAIreland: "I'm fully mobile. I can get up and do the things I want to do."


The all-time starting 5 for @kobebryant: Magic, Jordan, Bird, Russell and Kareem. I'm an absolute +1.

Lots of interesting stuff from @kobebryant just now. He's doing well with his rehab, and is not worried at all about his game coming back.


Entire interview: http://espn.go.com/e...play?id=9404335

"Bryant had come to rage against the idea that Howard's clownish disposition could overtake the locker room, the Lakers' culture, and had warned Howard that he would never, ever let it happen."

Got this recap from another board,


1.) Kobe can walk around now pretty freely, but can't run just yet. 
2.) He talked to Dwight a few weeks ago and see how he was. He will look to talk to Howard again soon. 
3.) Kobe talks about his free agency in 2004 and how it was and how he went about it. 
4.) Kobe talks about Game 6 of NBA Finals and how he has no rooting interest but did say he has friends on both teams and each team are worthy of winning the championship. Kobe also said that his best Finals game was GAME 7 of the 2010 NBA Championship! 
5.) Kobe was asked if he would have fouled with a 3 point lead with the time running out and he said no unless there was an offensive rebound because everyone is in chaos and scrambling. 
6.) Kobe was asked about his all time starting 5 (Magic, Jordan, Bird, Russell, Kareem) 
7.) Kobe was asked if Doc Rivers, KG, and Pierce coming to the Clippers mean anything. He said they would have been older than the Lakers and the Lakers can actually do fast breaks like Showtime...lol. 
8.) Kobe talks about his camp in July for kids and how it teaches them to play the right way. 
9.) Kobe talks about what he has been doing at home while rehabbing and recovering from his injury, which includes watching moves and TV shows. 
10.) Ireland ask Kobe who is the bigger star in LA, him or Jack Nicholson, and Kobe says he will probably attract more attention for being a 6'6" black man walking into a nice restaurant in Beverly Hills. 
11.) Kobe states that at the LATEST that he will be back is late November/December and said once he is cleared to lift heavy weights and full on basketball, that is when he will play. He also said that if he reinjures it then it is what is. He won't have second thoughts about it. 
12.) Kobe and the Lakers will be in China in October 
13.) Kobe gives a prediction of who will win Game 7 saying that if the Spurs can keep Wade in check and keep the game close then they have a chance. He also said Wade is due for a huge breakout game.
