Nichols: You said one day you wanted to be traded, you said you wanted to be a Laker for Life. There were different phone calls back and forth.
Bryant: I think a lot of people misinterpreted it. But that’s water under the bridge to me, because going forward, we’re handling our situation between ourselves, meaning the Lakers organization and myself. If things, if things were to be different, we both would have handled the situation a little differently.
Nichols: When you look back on that, are you thinking … Oh God, what was I doing then?
Bryant: Yeah, sure, it was just frustration. Frustration gets the best of everybody.
