“I guess Penny kind of blew him off or whatever, I’m not sure — this is what Kobe was telling me. And then he said he came up to me, and I was real nice to him…I never knew that until he told me one day, like this rookie, ‘You remember me?’ He was like ‘I came in the locker room.’ And I was like, ‘Oh yeah, that was you.’”

“I realized what I loved about him early on was he wanted the spot. He wanted to be the best,” he went on to say.
