Kobe Bryant Advising Isaiah Thomas During Playoffs

Kobe Bryant has been advising Isaiah Thomas regularly since the start of the playoffs.

Bryant began helping Thomas after the Celtics lost the first two games of their first round series to the Chicago Bulls.

"He reached out on behalf of my sister when [she passed away]," Thomas said of Bryant. "He wanted to go over film with me. He called me and we did it. He made me figure out a lot of things... He's just been a very helping hand when it comes to the film and figuring out what to do the next day."

Thomas had 53 points in Game 2.

"He's been sending me a text before and after every game since the first round. He definitely helps. He just tells me what he sees and what I should be watching for in film," Thomas said.

Thomas was surprised at the detail Bryant paid attention to.

"Mentally, he's just on a different level than anybody I've ever met. We were on the phone for 30 minutes. I e-mailed him my film and he watched every second, telling me what times to go to look at and certain plays and things I didn't look at when I watched film. Mentally, you can tell he's one of the greatest ever."

Praying for  1. Some Cohesion (Ill fitting parts with young bucks, new guys, and those playing for next contracts may muck things up all season) 2. Better Coaching, No More Tanking (Last season was more of the latter but not sure how much of the former we can count on. Walton with something to prove this season as much as any Laker player) 3. Rookie Watch (Hoping Lonzo outshines his daddy (ROTY??), and Kuzma finds minutes and makes a push for all rook 2nd team)

READY FOR SEASON!!!

i feel there's a certain level you need to get to before the type of advanced stuff that kobe is dishing out to thomas would prove useful...we don't have anyone on that level yet.  we're still trying to figure out how to play defense and run offense, analyzing playoff game film for strategies is a little ways down the road
