    What’s up with the video at the 7 – 8 min mark? haha

    It fast forwards on mine automatically. LoL.

    Video gets weird after 8 mins! So unprofessional on the camera man/video editor! LoL

    haha, anyways good job Jim Hill on trying to get Kobe on camera for more than 15 mins. A difficult job for other reporters nowadays.

    is kobe doing drugs??? how many times is he going to lick his lips? lay off the crack pipe man!!!!!

  • nyla

    When people lick their lips constantly, its because they’re nervous and uncomfortable.

  • kyler_hay

    the video is funny

    Kobe licks his lips because that’s what Jordan did. He respects Jordan and he tries to be like him. Watch Jordan’s videos and you’ll know what I’m talking about.

    What does “sit tight” mean?

    I don’t get it. Did I miss something here? Does that mean he’s still trying to ask for a trade?

    To me, it just seems like he’s going out of his way to be avoid saying “Lakers”.

    WTF?????????????????

  • kb24 4life

    i note in kobe´s exppression that he wants to be a laker
    the only thing is that he wants to win maybe if we don´t get any other superstar we might not be as bad as we think

    fisher better than smush
    mihm better than kwame and bynum
    it will be lamar´s breakout year
    luke is healthy
    and kobe is the best player in world

  • foxxy

    KOBE LOOKED NERVOUS TO ME….I REALLY BELIEVE HE IS ASHAMED OF HIS TIRAD IN LATE MAY. I FEEL HE WILL IN DUE TIME APOLIGIZE TO HIS DEVOTED FANS!!!!!AND A LAKER HE WILL STAY!!! I ALSO BELIEVE THERES A DEEPER PROBLEM KOBE HAS WITH THE LAKER ORG WHICH IS TRUST…SOMEWHERE DOWN THE ROAD HE LOST RESPECT AND TRUST!!!! LISTEN TO THE INTERVIEWS HE GAVE IN MAY…HE WAS REALLY HURT!!!! ITS NOT JUST ABOUT THE WINNING….WHEN YOU’VE LOST TRUST…YOU’VE GOT NOTHING. I HOPE THEY CAN WORK EVERYTHING OUT!!!!

    I know you guys saw this whole interview…What did you guys think about this…Right when they were about to talk about the Lakers Kobe tells Jim Hill, “Time to put my PC face on” WTF? The whole unedited version which was like 18 minutes was put on earlier today and now they’ve edited to 8 minutes..PC? Politically Correct…Geezus this guy is something…I love Kobe and all but man..this guy needs to stop talking..

    Phoenix Coach Mike D’Antoni, who marveled at his ferocity as Kobe won the All-Star MVP here in February, is marveling at him again as an assistant coach on this team.

    “He loves playing and he loves to compete and it just carries over,” said D’Antoni. “I think all the guys are doing it this summer. It’s been a joy.

    “No matter who we’re playing, what we’re doing, he’s competing. He works out like a fiend. I mean, he works out in the morning, at night. It’s pretty impressive.”

    Said Detroit guard Chauncey Billups: “I’ve always said from the beginning that I felt like Kobe was the best player in the league. We’re around a very elite group right now and you can still see his greatness.

    “The same can be said for a few more players but Kobe’s the cream of the crop out there.”

    The U.S. team may not be tested here, nor are the Lakers likely to get their questions answered. In both cases, that time is coming, but it’s not now.

    The Lakers front office is so inept. Peirce said “I want help” and he got KG and Ray Allen. Kobe said “I want help” and he got Derek Fisher, Chris Mihm, and Cobe Karl. No wonder Kobe wants out.
