In part 4 of 4 of their sit down conversation, Bryant discussed the Kobe System, and the words of advice he had for his Lakers teammate Pau Gasol in regards to the Olympic games:
David Brickley: Pau Gasol is obviously your Laker teammate, I remember when you played the Minnesota Timberwolves after the game you told Ricky Rubio ‘get ready’ so obviously the whole Olympics was on your mind and that was something you were already looking forward to.
Kobe Bryant: Well yea you know Spain has always been one of our top competitors. You know going into the Olympics I think they were ranked #1 in the world at the time [in 2008], so I talked to Pau about 3 days ago just to see how hes doing and stuff and he said I’m doing fine and I said make sure you train and work hard man and I hope you’re healthy and ready to go get that silver medal man [laughs]. So he says right back, yea I’m training real hard but it ain’t for the silver medal buddy [laughs].
