Daily News: “So now (radio analyst and former Laker) Mychal Thompson is asking me on this trip: Is Kobe better than Jordan?” Hundley said. “I think so. Kobe has been all business. He’s now a smart player and knows what he can do against certain players. He’s become a student of the game.
“I’ve had a lot of fun, even though I’ve had some problems with my timing being a little erratic. But you gotta remember, I haven’t been an analyst in 35 years, back with Chick,” said Hundley, a play-by-play man in Utah before he retired after the 2009 playoffs with another year left on his contract.
“I actually gotta give (commissioner) David Stern a call. I’m just trying to find out how many games I’ve got to broadcast this season to qualify for a ring (if the Lakers win the title). John Black (the team’s director of communications) said he’d look into it for me.”
