Kobe Bryant recently sat down with Laker Nation’s own David Brickley, Jason Riley, and Kevin Figgers.

In part 3 of 4 of their sit down conversation, Bryant discusses Team vs. Individual competition, why he enjoys the more non-traditional sports at the Olympic games, and much more!

Bryant also talks about how much he enjoys being a part of the Olympic games:

Jason Riley: We had some inside sources that have told us you had an opportunity to jump in the water with Michael Phelps…

Kobe Bryant: [laughs] Nah, I m not doing that! But I enjoyed watching him swim and you know going to a bunch of different events because that’s really what the Olympics are about, its a celebration of the athlete and having the opportunity to go to different events and seeing them do what they do best was a real treat for me. I mean its like you know its like a kid in a candy store you know you get chance to meet so many different athletes from so many different countries and kind of talk to them about their stories and what got them to this point, also how they train for their particular sport.
