"A Laker mentoring a Celtic...during the playoffs."


  

          

https://sports.yahoo.com/news/kobe-bryant-helping-isaiah-thomas-225113212.html

No wonder Isaiah Thomas put together a monster 53-point game on Tuesday — he’s been talking to one of the best big game players in NBA history.

Thomas revealed on Wednesday he’s been in communication with Kobe Bryant, getting some scouting reports and a perspective of what Kobe sees, what to watch on film. Here’s what Thomas said, via A. Sherrod Blakely of CSNNE.com.


John Wall will be texting Kobe in 3…2…

The best players lean on each other, trainers, pretty much anyone they trust to provide a different perspective and give them ideas on how to attack certain players or situations. Kobe watched as much film, studied the game and his opponent, as much as any player in the league. He has seen everything. It’s a fantastic perspective to get.

It’s a great move by Thomas to lean on him.

Even Red Auerbach would be good with a Laker helping a Celtic in this case.

kobe takes an interest in certain players. kyrie is one of them. isaiah is another. iirc devin booker. it's usually a GUARD not a forward like lebron

Yet another example here. IT also admittedly grew up a Laker and Kobe fan so it would be highly unlikely if they haven't connected before.

...the only people who form restricted alliances in professional sports are the fanatics.

*garnett is a rare exception.

anyone who sees this as kobe targeting lebron would be quick to remember that kobe & kyrie speak on a regular basis about the very same thing.

Do you want to see a list of things that were different "back in the day"?

If your barometer for why something is or isn't acceptable today hinges on whether or not people did it way back when, you don't really have an argument.

its strange, particularly given the team's two histories, and that is part of what made it newsworthy.

If that's the case.

I recently read a report that BI hasn't worked out with Kobe yet. I don't know how true that is or isn't though.

Everyone on this team should be beating down his door at 2 am trying to get some of what he had.

And letting them develop a little bit outside of his shadow.

Or maybe he doesn't feel any of them are worthy right now.

Obviously we have no way of knowing why.

It's not like they can't be successful without Kobe's tutelage.

It's still a little glaring to read about Kobe working with players from other teams while also reading that he hasn't been working with Lakers.

Some of them are probably sour over how his run ended.

It would greatly benefit them but it takes humility to do that. They need to come to him to ask for help and he's sure to provide it if he wants to. I wouldn't be surprised if Magic takes note of who does and doesn't reach out to Kobe as he evaluates things moving forward.

Coach Walton should reach out to Kobe not for advice but to provide another perspective on things. They have a solid rapport so it's not a complete stretch for this to happen.

Kobe and Julius are known to be tight and constantly texting. Luke himself has said he's spoken to Kobe about a few things.

That's why I was saying they are likely just taking a break first. Kira is a Cavs guy so I expected him not to know that info
