Bryant recently held a a news conference in conjunction with the Manchester United/Barcelona soccer game in Washington D.C.
After the news conference, Bryant sat down with George Smith on ESPN’s “SportsCenter” for a Sunday sit-down conversation.
Bryant was asked about new head coach Mike Brown and the level of communication the two have had:
We’ve talked. We’ve met, we’ve talked several times, met several times. We have been in dialogue there has been an open dialogue.”
George Smith then asked Kobe’s thoughts on Brown as the Lakers new Head Coach:
He just seems like the type of coach that buttons everything up, so I think as players we’ll all be happy.”
Although he did not go into detail, this is the first time Bryant has said anything about Coach Mike Brown. Opting to say “No Comment” or not answer questions in previous attempts by the media.
