Phil was on with Dan Patrick today on the radio. Some interesting stuff, Phil seems pretty positive about this upcoming season. Here’s a quick recap from Clublakers member; tbs.
ClubLakers Forums: Patrick asked how you prepare for media day.
Phil said there are many events, photos, promotional things to do, then finally the media gets to ask their questions.
DP asked Phil to name 3 questions he knew he would get.
Phil said they would probably be: Are you surprised that Kobe is here? What do you think your chances are this year? How is your health?
Phil said he’s still about three weeks away from throwing away his cane. His hip is still a little troublesome so he can’t be as ambulatory as he wants to be moving up and down the court. He has been increasing the intensity of his therapy.
Phil talked about how he understood Kobe’s frustration. He wasn’t going to amplify or mollify the comments. Kobe is a talented player who wants a chance to compete on the stage of the finals.
