Kobe Bryant appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night and discussed a variety of topics, in some interesting shoes by the way. In Part I of the interview, the Mamba talks about the Lakers’ current season and the expectations that were placed on this team in the summer.
In Part 2 of the interview, Kobe discusses his will to win, which was on full display on Wednesday in New Orleans, Dennis Rodman, Twitter and his new nickname “Vino.”
In the final part of the interview, Kobe talks about his summer camp, teams trying to buy him as a player growing up in Italy, whether he’ll retire as a Laker and when he’ll hang it up.
Kobe is back in action tonight as the Lakers take on the Toronto Raptors tonight at Staples Center.
