What they're saying about Kobe Bryant
It’s been a long day, starting with a 7:30 a.m. flight to New Orleans on Friday morning. I’m tired. So I’m just going to leave a few quotes about Kobe Bryant following his fourth straight game of 50 points or more.
“You love watching greatness. And right now you’re watching one of the greatest players of our time.” — Hornets coach Byron Scott.
“Just watching it on the highlights, you’re getting a chance to witness history in the league. It’s something that rarely happens, and it’s something that not that many players get a chance to do. I think that’s the main thing, being able to be a part of that by being in the league and playing against a guy of his caliber.” — Hornets forward Desmond Mason.
“His will is like no other. He’s got to be one of the top athletes of all time as far as competing and determination and will is concerned He’s right up there with the great ones.” — Lakers forward Lamar Odom.
“Right now we’re witnessing greatness. I think when it’s all said and done and he’s gone from this game, we’re going to take a look at what he did and really appreciate it. Few of us appreciate it right now. I’m one of them who does appreciate what he’s doing. When he’s finished and we take a look back, the man has done some incredible things.” — Hornets center Tyson Chandler.
“Remember that suspension two weeks ago? I think that has motivated him. I don’t know if we like to have suspensions all of the time to work for us, but there were some things there that motivated him.” — Lakers coach Phil Jackson.
