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

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].

Are you a different Animal, and the same beast?

Huh?

Yeah, don’t feel bad. Kanye West didn’t get it either in “The Beastion level” of the Kobe System. A series of commercials released by Nike earlier this year.

Kobe Bryant recently sat down with Laker Nation’s own David Brickley, Jason Riley, and Kevin Figgers. He was asked about the Kobe System, and if Kanye West has figured it out yet. Bryant jokingly played along:

Kobe Bryant: [smiling] He’s working on it, hes working on it. You know its always about going over the top. You know whatever that means, you know its really one of those cryptic message that seems to make a lot of sense even when it makes no sense.

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, his appreciation of the training schedule of one Michael Phelps, and much more!

Bryant also talks about how he is a fan of the more non-traditional sports at the Olympics:

Kevin Figgers: What is it about the off-color sports that intrigue you so much?

Kobe Bryant: Well you have a certain amount of appreciation for what they do because obviously to get at this elite level there has to be something in them that makes them the best at what they do, whether be it mental, be it physical, be it the preparation, there’s something about them and you know I really came to know some of the synchronized swimmers, some of our equestrian riders, archers, stuff like that as we’re walking to opening ceremonies in Beijing and all of us US athletes are walking together and that’s a great time to get to know some of them and start talking about some of their sports and it was just extremely interesting to me.

In addition, Bryant recently met up with the Australian swim team. He posed for a picture with, 3-time Olympic Gold medalist, Stephanie Rice. Read more over on Kobe’s Official Facebook.

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.

In part 2 of 4 of their sit down conversation, Bryant discusses how he trains for the Olympic games, what role he will play for Team USA, and much more!

Bryant also talked about the importance of trash talking:

Jason Riley: One of the interesting things about the timing of the Olympics is that its pretty quick after the NBA season. So, obviously these are your competitors and then a month later these guys are your teammates so what are those practices like when you get over there and you’re playing with those guys?

Kobe Bryant: They’re spirited [laughs]. You know a lot of it really falls on me because I’m kind of the wiser of the guys having been around so many years so most of the time I set the tone in practice by trash talking certain players whether it be a Lebron, or…

JR: Friendly wagers..?

KB: [laughs]…You know or in Beijing it was D-Wade. Kinda getting practice going because up to that point its always kind of a little uncomfortable when guys don’t know if they can elbow a guy or talk trash to a guy and you know I just come out and just start chirping man [smiling]…

DB & JR: [laughs]

KB: …But it makes practices more fun and everyone starts talking trash back and forth to each other and there’s some pretty funny stuff that’s said most of the time.
