Phil Jackson last newsconference as coach of the Lakers with Ted Sobel:
After our little chat, Phil shooks hands with many of us in a nice exiting gesture as he walked back towards his office like an old cowboy riding off into the sunset.
Kobe Bryant with Ted Sobel:
As Kobe began to leave the room, I tapped him on the shoulder and jokingly asked if the rumor about his wife Vanessa shopping some kind of reality show was true? And he just was Kobe being Kobe when responding with “first those stupid rumors about Pao and me and now this one?” The answer was a very emphatic “Fuck No!” and he then laughed it off with me, winked, said have a nice summer and off he went. So that clears up that question and please don’t ask me to ask him about that again, ok?…thanks!
