O.C. Register Blog: And as much as disgruntled Kobe Bryant has liked Jermaine all these years, Garnett was the guy who sort of took Bryant in at the kid’s first All-Star Game and kept in touch via phone all these years, too. Note that the gist of Bryant’s sentiment, as he told me back in March, is this: “I love KG.”
We’ll see if the Lakers can get it done and if Bryant comes around with a true superstar partner to help him back to titletown.
