Kobe Bryant on ESPN Radio Chicago
With the Lakers on the road, some of you may be jonsing for the voice of a traveling Kobe Bryant. Well, we at Lakers Blog are nothing if not enablers, so here's a podcast link of KB24 calling into "The Afternoon Saloon" on ESPN Radio Chicago. He comes on at the 3:30 mark.
Topics addressed range from a contest for Chicago area kids to design his new "The Black Mamba" shoe, the odds of Shaq retiring in purple and gold (Kobe says he's heard nothing of any such desire on The Big Bowler's part) and the impact of Andrew Bynum's return. He also dodges the inevitable MVP query, stating he doesn't really know what the criteria is. And here Joe Shmoe NBA fan thought he and an icon like Kobe Bryant couldn't possibly have anything in common.
Also, big ups for Kobe on picking up a "Goodfellas" reference. Always points in my book.
