“It’s an important time in our history for everybody,” Bryant said. “Plus to play on this day and celebrate in our way, it’s extremely special. Its really special.”
(No, not because they play the Cleveland Cavaliers and LeBron James).
And there’s another reason today is special in the Bryant house — it’s his older daughter’s birthday.
“We kind of feel she’s part of history,” Bryant said.
But if he did get to meet Obama, what would he ask him?
“I don’t want to get into any of the deeper issues, so lets just stick to something fun,” Bryant said. “(I would say) I would love a one-on-one game. I do know he goes left. (But) I would force him right and probably foul him. Then give him a new pair of Kobe kicks.”
Sure hope Obama likes purple and gold.
