Lakers Gather At Practice Facility, Share Favorite Stories Of Kobe Bryant 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Wed Jan 29, 2020 7:09 am

Los Angeles Lakers players and coaches gathered for a light workout on Tuesday that turned into an impromptu storytelling session about their favorite memories of Kobe Bryant.


It was the first time that the team had met since Bryant's passing.


LeBron James recalled of story of Bryant knocking down Pau Gasol during a game between Team USA and Spain in the 2008 Olympics, according to a source. Dr. Judy Seto, the director of sports performance, said that it was a calculated move to get Gasol thinking of where he had to improve before joining the Lakers the following season.


The stories, seen as a "centering" moment, were the first step to a return to normalcy for the team.


"Everybody in the company has a Kobe story or their version of a Kobe story," a team source told Dave McMenamin of ESPN.

Watching Jerry West and Shaq last night on TNT was the toughest thing ever, but it was therapeutic.
