"He was still here from the right. It could have been great. What's crazy about him man is I used to open up from and see ya. And he would have like, he would do four hours of jokes. Literally four hours of material. Yeah. And kill for four hours. I mean, fucking crushed. And then, but he probably, let's say he's stole. He's still like an hour of that. Let's say allegedly, he didn't need to steal the other three fucking hours. Like he could have just done three hours of his material and walked away. I don't know why he had the need to take a right, Greg. Well, you know, I don't think he stole as much as everybody seems to think he stole. I mean, and that's the thing he does do hours and hours and hours of material. So it's like, you didn't steal all of it. So, I mean, you know, I personally think that he got, he got much more of a bum rap than he deserved in terms of all that because again, the big joke that everyone goes back to is a joke that really anybody could have written. And the worst part about that joke is that it wasn't in line with his style at all. He's not the short form Joe Bryant. It was the Cosby, though. If you look at Cosby, he literally did a Cosby bit. That was like an 8 minute bit. And it was like verbatim. It involved drugging and raping women. That was a 42 year bit. It was like a beat by beat by beat. Did he really? That one I'm not aware. If I really was just aware of the whole, you know, who's going to build that wall joke? No, no, but you were like, dude, you took from Cosby. And it was like a bit. That was the one where you were like, all right, and that's the only thing my only knock on him is that, yeah, when he does perform, it's for hours. And it's just like, dude, can you just do like 30 minutes and get off? I used to have to sell t-shirts for him at the end, right? His shirts. And after four hours, the show was sort of ten. It would be 2 o'clock in the morning, and then he made me make me read the jokes from the T-shirt. So I would bomb on his T-shirt joke. It was a long ass joke. It was like, if you're coming here from America, it was like a three minute thing I'm reading. I'm like, dude, come on. How big is that T-shirt? Yeah. It comes on two tablets. All right, so did you guys watch the fights on Saturday? Yes. Nope. Don? Hell, nope. Listen, this week. I'll give you guys a little update. So Marlon Vera beat Rob Font. Great fight. Great fight. They fight from Harlan Vera when poor Rob Font still icing his face somewhere..

"You mentioned toward the end that you did reach out to his parents to Pam and Joe and to his sisters that they all declined. Understandable, they've probably conscious about everything. And for years, because there was a strain in the relationship. So a jumbled kind of question here, Mike to end with, which is just a bad reporter etiquette here. But I'm curious about two things, one is do you have any sense of and maybe it's impossible without having spoken to them because they don't want it to address it. Any sense of whether Kobe and his family ever found any kind of peace or reconciliation with each other after the strains they went through and I know that that's a long complicated thing to throw at the end of a podcast. But then secondarily to that I understand why they would say no to the book, but I'm curious if you have any sense of through channels or anything else, how they view this book because of all the books that have been written about them, I feel like this one, from a family's perspective, it captures so much of the richness of their family and how close they truly were before that chasm happens during Kobe's career and I actually think this is a book to the family, I think would book the family would embrace. But anyway, any sense of how they viewed this project or may view the book or whether you know if they might even have seen it by now. And any sense of whether there was a reconciliation before to the first of all, thank you for that. To the reconciliation part, I don't know. I think I've heard things like everybody else has that they were working towards that. And I've heard a little bit that Vanessa has some kind of connection with Sharia Bryant, the older of Kobe's two older sisters. But I don't know that that's progressing in any regard. I don't know. As far as Joe and Pam reaction to the book are knowing about the book. I know they're aware that I was writing the book. I heard through a close family friend. The one family member who I did interview for the book was John Cox, Kobe's cousin, who was almost like his younger brother. They basically grew up together. And from Sonny bakar, who obviously signed Kobe to Adidas back in 96. Through them, I know that Joe and Pam are aware of the book. I have not heard from them yet. I don't know what their reaction is yet. It's funny you would ask on Monday night, I got a email that was unsigned. From someone saying, dear Mike, would love for you to send an autographed copy of the book, Pam and I are very pleased with it and we wish you all the best. And I thought it was from Joe Bryant. Turns out it was from Sonny bakar, whose wife is named Pam as well. And my initial reaction and seeing that was relief. Just to know that they had seen it and they were okay with it. I mean, my feeling is, and I said this in the book and I'm sure you feel the same way. As far as I know, Joe and Pam have not spoken publicly at all about Kobe's death. And from a pure journalism repertory perspective, I'm glad for that..

"Of had this flaky personality. It was kind of a nardo, the kind of guy who'd missed the team bus to practice and things like that. So and then once his career ends, he's bitter about what happened. You know, I didn't get the shot. I should have gotten and Kobe hears this over time. And Kobe looks at his dad and says, I'm not going to be him. I'm not going to let what happened to my dad happened to me. I'm going to redeem the Bryant name when it comes to basketball. So you've got these two forces, right? You've got motivation from talent coming from the dad's side of things. And of course, the experience that comes with having been an NBA player. And you've got the mentality from Pam brine from the mom. And you put those together and I think that's where you get this melding and Kobe of the two. He had it within him, but then he has the environment and the upbringing that it kind of harnesses that desire in the way to make him the greatest player on the planet for a while. I mean, certainly in his work ethic, his dedication, his self discipline when it came to basketball, it seems to me that those are things that he or it's the course correction from Joe Bryant. There is a little bit of a, as you mentioned, dad was kind of flaky. Joe Bryant and his career probably maybe he was the wrong player at the wrong time and he would have been phenomenal in today's NBA as a 6 9 guy who could do it all out on the perimeter. But it seems to me that somewhere in there, Kobe finds a kind of he's got this north star and it drives him and focuses him in a way that maybe his father didn't have. It does go to the extreme. There's another passage again. Like some of these just strike me as, you know, if you want to look at them as, you know, here's a kid who just knew exactly what he wanted and how to get it. It's admirable, but it makes me sad to read some of these passages. Who was Kobe Bryant? I'm quoting your writing here. Who was Kobe Bryant during the spring and summer of 1994? He was a kid who had no free time because he wanted no free time. A kid who played in at least 6 basketball leagues in at least two basketball camps and traveled the east coast for AAU tournaments and it goes on to a few other details because there's more and more and then it finally ends with he was a kid obsessed..

"So there was an intellectual hurdle that I had to get over in my own head about. Am I telling a story that's already been done to death? And the more I thought about it, the more I thought, okay, Philadelphia is really parochial. It's kind of gotten under the dome kind of sensibility if you're familiar at all with the area. So while people here might know the lower Marion story or a little bit more about the Italy side of Kobe's story, the rest of the country in maybe the rest of the world don't. And I really wanted to put Kobe in his in the proper sense of time and place, like the era of him being a teenager. The place of lower Marion. What is it about this community? What was it about this high school in some ways that allowed him to become who he was? It wasn't totally because of that. It wasn't totally that, he grew up in lower Marion, therefore, he adopted the mamba mentality. But that aspect of his story really appealed to me. Because, as you said, nobody had really gone that deep on it. You read stuff, and it's like, yeah, we played it lower Marion high school. Okay, well what does that mean? There are certain connotations to that. If you're familiar with the place of lower Marion township or the mainline on Philadelphia, there are certain kind of stereotypes and connotations that come up. But what was the actual history there? What aspects of his Kobe's story in that setting had not been told and how can I put him in his time and place in that spot to show how he became who he became? So let's talk about that. The family moves to lower Marion when he is 12. Yes. In December of 1991, he had just turned 13. Just turned 13, who is Kobe Bryant, you know, son of Joe Bryant, former NBA player who has now grown up mostly in Italy and has moved with his family at age 13 to the outskirts of Philadelphia, who is Kobe in that moment and what about that? Do you think does now inform us about the Kobe that we would all come to know? Well, in a lot of respects he's an outsider, okay? So he steps into the lower Marion community. He's not in high school just yet. He's he shows up at balakin with middle school in 8th grade and kind of the middle of the school year. He doesn't know what's cool. He doesn't know what kind of clothes to wear. What clothes are cool? What music is cool? What TV shows are cool. He doesn't know that everybody's watching the Cosby show or cheers or The Simpsons or listening to this kind of music or that kind of music..

"The clear number one quarterback whether he should be a second round pick if you do it like heath i know you can sort your ranking your projections at least by replacement level point above replacement. Here's a first round pick depending on where you set the replacement level. I did this exercise yesterday. You can get patrick. Mahomes into top fifteen i. I used An old joe bryant article. Joe bryant runs football guys which is where i was for the cbs and he was about on value based drafting and he. I believe came up with the concept and what they would use as the baseline was the top one hundred picks how many players each position are going in the top. One hundred six. That is your baseline for production. However much better each player is at their position than that number. In this instance. i believe. There's currently thirteen quarterbacks going in the top one hundred six by adp. I used however much better. Mahomes is in the thirteenth quarterback compared to how much better mccaffrey is than the thirty eighth running back and the forty first wide receiver and i think the seventh tight end where the measurements using that methodology. I i have homes that the seventh pick now. I'm not going to put rank at the seven. I'm not going to take them with the seventh pick. But i'm take gonna take him in the second round more often. We talk more about this one question. I do though what was patrick. Mahomes average over the last three seasons. Twenty eight point nine so it is worth noting. He's only one point six points. Better than lamar jackson as a starter. Mark jackson's been at twenty seven point. Three if you only count the games he started in two thousand. Eighteen appeared in eighteen sixteen games but he only start at seven so that gap does shrink. But that's also potentially a lamar jackson stat. That maybe it's just the two of them should be separate right from the pack. We'll talk about value. Value-based drafting we probably spent a lot of time on that. Now my my thing with that status that yeah three years ago mahomes was so much better than everyone but two years ago he wasn't. He wasn't even a top five quarterback and last year he was basically right in the mix with alan prescott rogers as depending on which site. You're looking at any of them could've finished..

"Has there ever been someone defeated when seeking election to a second four year term? Third terms? Yes. Second terms. No. And that's where every either major party So it tells you just how big the road is. The Jim James Craig has to take down Gretchen Whitmer. But speaking about my buddy Bill Ballenger, and we wanted to get him on today and we weren't able to make the connection. He's got a great blog post today. Here's the headline Whitmer, maybe Michigan's worst governor ever. But she's still likely to be re elected. Uh and he makes it pretty strong case, he said. It's not even her handling of the state's response to the covid epidemic, though, he said. She certainly has destroyed businesses, damaged public education, ruins people's livelihoods and injured their physical and mental health. He said. It didn't have to be this bad incoherence, unpredictability and internal contradictions of Whitman's unilateral mandates have been apparent to all even while she didn't follow her own edicts. Michiganders learned that she doesn't abide by the same freedom killing rules she imposed on every resident of Michigan. She shunned masked when she's with her friends. She was caught red handed, violating her own social distancing guidelines. And, of course, she went on that now infamous trip down to Florida and he says, for those that want to call me is sexist, and I'm just picking on the female governor. He said. Look, I don't think she can hold a candle to Jennifer Grand home he makes she makes grand home look like a combination of Winston Churchill and Joan of Arc. And he goes on, and I mean it's line five. It's one thing after another, And as he says, it's also the transparency, the fact that when she was called out Some of her duplicity on these things. That she ducked it. She didn't answer the questions. Um, I want to give you a little bit more about James Craig. He talked about how he became a Republican. And we invite your your thoughts on. What do you think he makes an effective candidate against scratching? Whitmer, 1 808 5909571 808 590 wjr. Delighted to hear from you. He talked about the fact that he was in Los Angeles. In the beginning of the conversion is he was watching How democratic policies in the city of Angels just weren't working. Cut for what struck me early in my police career. Is that many African Americans are most vulnerable communities. We're in a tragic cycle of poverty. That was generational. And while I couldn't fully understand the reasons I realized that the policies in many of our cities fail, I came to realize that the Republican Party's initial fight to end physical bondage. Was today, replaced by economic bondage, which we see in our vulnerable communities of color. We know That handouts increased dependency on government. Only for the purpose of political game. No, he made he made a very impassioned self reliance message. And I thought resonated. Really, Especially with the one lady there in the audience that apparently thought she was in church. Yeah, Yeah, it's so And also, he said, you know, is it my my conversion went, I went further to the right. When Maxine Waters came to town in the wake of the Rodney King.

He talked about how it was a really good year for them to do a lot of podcasts. So if you have more people who are at home He was really pushing that since students could couldn't get into the studio and broadcasting them or were they just distributing them as podcast. You know both both. So in some cases The podcasts were also being broadcast radio shows. And and so in this meet up. I i met some of joe students who we invited onto radio survivor and and they were the students behind the rice and shine podcast.

"ESPN radio alongside Mike Wells and Myron Metcalf. I'm Joe Fortune ball, and it is a big day. For the world of basketball as the 2020 Yes. 2020 Hall of Fame class will be inducted into the Naysmith Basketball Hall of Fame tonight. The speeches are set to be given in the next few hours will break to it. If something pops up that we'd like to share with you, but the three big headliners tonight, Myron Tim Duncan. Kevin Garnett and none other than the late great Kobe Bryant. We've been sharing stories with listeners. We've been sharing stories with each other throughout the course of the show, Kobe Bryant when he comes to mind, is there specific moment, a specific game specific error that stands out to you? That is just Pure vintage Kobe. Well, I think maybe off the court I'd covered in instantly Tournament game a couple years back, and he and bloody healed Who's now with the Sacramento Kings that formed a relationship and I looked up and Kobe's there once, but there's a lot of buzz about that. He's like in the eighth row. Just kind of hanging out. And I remember after the game, Buddy Hill goes up and he was talking to Kobe and you could just see just sort of all struck He Woz. It was like his idol was in front of him, and I think That's what Kobe Bryant represented for this generation of players. They wanted to be him. Hey, wanted to you, Mike, but they wanted to be him. I think more than anything, of all the incredible moments he's had five championships coming out of high school. To me. It's just the fact Mike that he carried that wait. I mean, this guy who had to be good the buzz out of high school and then you're in l A. They're just so many reasons that a player in that position who was 17 when he was drafted, I believe would have failed. Jerry West believed in him, and he's lived up to the hype and some you just kind of wish he was here I was. You definitely wish he was here, but I think it'll be a great celebration of his life and career at the Hall of Fame today. We We know about Kobe, the basketball player and obviously what he's you know, touch something lives. What I liked about him was it wasn't just about the MBA. I mean, he loved going to W NBA games, taking his daughter G there and, you know, coaching, helping coach that they're a team. That's a side that I liked about Kobe. It wasn't just that he you know the multiple championships that he won the competitive side trying to go toe to toe. And when, as many titles as Michael Jordan and being arguably the greatest basketball player of all time, it was his idea his soft side and when I say soft, I don't mean truly soft but decide that you know the passionate side of wanting to have his daughter, you know, be one of the best basketball players in her age group and just support the WN BA players. It's funny. I was on a flight to Phoenix. Prior to the pandemic, and I just happen to get sitting, too, said I was sitting next to a family and their daughter that was on the one on the diving team in the Olympics. And they went over the Beijing in pretty for the Olympics. What was it? 22,008 of them always taken? You know, eight, And they said that Kobe would be in all the different events and they were showing me pictures on your phone of Kobe. Just being a spectator. So while he wanted to be the passionate side of being in the gym nonstop, like like Joe mentioned a story earlier. He also wanted to support others, and that's what I liked about Kobe Bryant and in part B was when he towards Achilles. And he got back in no time. The following season, He wanted to be on the basketball court and show that he was still one of the top dogs. Mike Wells, Myron Medcalf, Joe 14 Ball. This is Game day on ESPN radio. It's fascinating to sit back and look at it as a whole because this was one of the few individuals we got to watch from a very young age mature all the way through being an adult. Mean, we get introduced to a lot of these guys. Maybe when they're in college, you know, Think about college football. We got to meet Trevor Laurence a little bit. We got to know a little bit about his private life. But now we're going to see him as a football player. You know, we heard about Kobe early because his father was Joe Bryant, former basketball player right? And you know he's overseas growing up in Italy, So you hear about them a little bit much like you heard about a guy like Bryce Harper or Stephen Strasburg, for example. Or LeBron James, and then he comes into the public eye with no college. So we're meeting him at 17 and 18 years old and then immediately traded to Los Angeles, which Musicians, Actors, athletes, whatever it could be, could fall temptation to all of that. And just wash out almost immediately. 18 years old. Oh, by the way, you're playing with shack. Oh, by the way right away, you're playing for titles. Like putting all that on the shoulders and then watching them grow up, watching him play well, watching him make mistakes both on and off the court, watching him grow, watching him learn, watching him evolve and get married and evolve and have Children and evolved from from more than just this young basketball player. That was at one point notice Joe Bryant's kid to ultimately Kobe Bryant. Leader, community leader. White husband, Father mentor All these things later in life. I mean, that's why I think it stung so badly to see him taken away from all of us because we had watched that progression and he was getting better and better and better. And obviously, the basketball. You know, you get older in the game falls apart a little bit. That's gonna happen, everyone, but as a human, it just got better and better watching him throughout. And I think that was the toughest thing for so many of us, Myron When he was taken away. So young and so tragically is that we have been watching just greatness on and off the court grow. Over two plus decades. Yeah, and to watch Michael Jordan, shedding tears at the memorials for Kobe Bryant and to share about their relationship, and it was almost like Michael Jordan was saying Maybe that was the one guy who understood me. Like like you. Even though he was younger, they had the same mindset on became friends. And, Yeah, you wish she was here. You know, this is such a tragic thing to think back to what happened. But you're also happy that his life will be celebrated like Mike to me. That group of guys Kevin Garnett and Kobe Bryant. Who go from high school to the pros right away. I think that's the last generation of high school legends. And I say that because we saw LeBron James, playing from his sophomore year on All of these guys travel the world now and they play each other, so there is a lot of mystery. About these players, even if they go into college or go right away to the MBA, whereas Kobe Bryant, it was a mystery Wait, he's doing what in Philly and then you had Kevin Garnett wait. He's doing what in Chicago, so I think they represent that last generation of legendary preps players and they're both lived up to the height. Well, you know, that was the time the pre YouTube videos where you know people were clicking on him nonstop. I mean, LeBron had people following him nonstop from, you know, like you said, from the age of, you know, essentially 14 15 years old, but that's that generation. Where, Okay. Were they went through that run with Garnett 95. Then you had Jermaine O'Neal, Kobe Bryant and 96. I don't member of stop my head who came on 98, but they had all those people, you know, pop popping up and just making that that starting that run of Let's make this jump..

It's five years away, and I really should be getting organized with all of this likely apology, explaining Do we have a plan for retirement? What is my investment portfolio right now? Is it? Is it a good investment portfolio, or should I be investing in something else or what? What should I be doing? And this time just tax season seems to it our mind saying I gotta get things organized with taxes. And I want to organize my financial life too. And we see that happening because I think people you're right, Tony. Sometimes what happens is they just have set of investments in different areas and different places, and we pollen. I called scattered accounts and sometimes in between a husband and wife. That could be five or six or seven or eight or nine or 10. Different accounts just because they've had for one case, And then they left that company that working for a new company, or they roll it over to entire Ray, and then they have individual counts and a broken house and I'm not really sure. But life is busy and they don't really have that time to focus on the investments. They just know they have those accounts and they get statements and so what they're looking to do is to consolidate organized so that they have a good plan going forward, and that's one of those things that it's like. Okay now that I have the plan, but As you were saying, when things show up every once in a while when your life starts changing or somebody loses a job and your family are you know, and the reason we call this show family financial focuses because we really are all in our interconnected as part of a family. One person's life change is going to affect another person's life change. And then the solutions are just so much more than anything you could just Google or just, you know, are just on a spreadsheet. It's problem solving right? And I know that's one of the things that you take great pride in is helping somebody. To have that conversation that creates some scenarios. When your problem solving and going all we could do this, or we could do that, or it's almost every review meeting is something like that. You know, it's like, Well, you know, I have this income property. I'm really Tired of managing it. What if I sold it? You know, we have the capital gains. But if I take the net of capital gains and invest that can that produce enough income from our for my retirement are you know, like I talked about earlier? You know, we're thinking of refinance and doesn't make sense to refinance. We got eight years left on our mortgage, but If we were, in fact we finance for a 15 year mortgage, But yet we can still pay it off in eight years. So all of these different items that have nothing to do with the actual investments that we're really helping with. But what good is the Anderson their investments? If we do a great job with that, But if we're not helping them with all the other areas of the financial life, right? Yeah, and that's that's something that people are really needing to help. Them process through something that's going on in their life. And you've seen that a lot this year with, you know, because people have been very devastated and emotional and you need that.

"Her? I mean, other than her, dad, you know? Her dad's love a basketball in her closeness to her father, You know they had that marvelous documentary but months back a year back. I don't know when I saw it about specifically about Yukon, and it was exciting, and it was inspiring to kids who might be looking to sports any indication that there was something other than our dad that inspired her in that direction. Um, you know, I think it's probably Ah, you know, uh, trying to find a Touchstone you know, with your parents, you know, it's something that you're a common area of interest and you know, it was perfect. And clearly pretty. Clearly she's you know, was a lot like her father, and it's just sad to see that she didn't really get a chance to find out. How could she could be 13 years old? Was she playing well? We know if she was a good player and skills. Yeah, if you you know, I'm of course I'm reluctant to crown her the next. You know, um, Diana Taurasi or anything like that, You know, she's uh She was, she showed promise. And there are videos online of her playing. You confined them on YouTube videos of her playing and she looked, you know, she looked like a pretty good little 13 year old basketball player Now, would she? You know Was she gonna get Toby's Jean to get tall, You know, that would be nice. Um, Vanessa isn't terribly tall. But you know, she she was certainly, um, an excellent ball handler for a 13 year old. I remember being 13. I couldn't even dribble so that I don't know. I've watched a lot of girls games. Trust me. I get that I watched him for years. I mean, like, from sixth grade, I guess and until right now, my my daughter's a junior in high school. So, so I get that and their ball handling it changes man that changes in drastic ways. But when they're 13 years old, usually they're pretty dog gone awkward with it. S so it's cute, You know, more than exciting. It's cute, but it gets to the point where it is really exciting to watch these kids play and I'll bet Kobe felt some of that, too, That this was something you know, WN Ba and girls playing at the level his daughter's playing. That's very different from what he was participating in. But he had to have seen the excitement and the thrill and the love the girls had of the game, too. Well, you know, if you look back when he retired, he announced his retirement on the players for being in this a letter called Dear Basketball. The letter that he turned into a ah film that you know, won an Oscar a couple years back, and it was all about his love of the game. And you know how he could just play for hours on end And you know that. I think he that purity kind of came through with his child again. You know, maybe I think that's a product that kind of gets stripped away at you over the years, especially after 20 years on. Do you know the pain that he was playing through here, you know, but really had worn worn down and, you know, I think he rediscovered that purity. Let's talk about some of the other things, the things things that Kobe moved on to other than helping with basketball. The girls basketball that he started getting involved in which I'm very grateful for. What are some of the other things that Kobe moved on, too. What Comey had told us. We had been so good stories on him at the post. And, um, um, welcome, Toder Arwen site and see some of the videos. Hey, was interested in telling stories. He was interested in producing content for Children, and I find it interesting that an athlete, you know a professional athletes who is, you know, by nature. You have to be self centered. Um and, you know, certainly There were times when Kobe Woz Um But you can't be a very effective storyteller. If you're self centered. You know, you have to look for the story somewhere else. And, you know, he was really beginning to get into that He was finding it fascinating. And, you know, I think that was just the beginning. He had a podcast for kids on Gwen's producing content for Children, and you know it. He really was. It would have been a fascinating second Acto Watch. Hey, was really evolving. Yeah, I know. And it was cut short. My producer just asked me to ask you how many languages Kobe spoke. So I'm assuming he spoke more than just English. Kobe. Um, call me Father was professional basketball player ages ago. Joe Bryant, and he's bleeding heavily and Pardon me jellybeans? Yes, and played in Italy. And, you know, Kobe spent a lot of his childhood in Italy playing soccer. That was another thing. He was big on that, you know, not specializing in a sport being a multi sport athlete, so he, you know, a lot of his formative years were spent in Italy. He could speak Italian very well. And, um, there are people who have seen him. Um, uh, speak Spanish fluently. Now Italian and Spanish, you know fairly similar. But how many languages exactly? I don't know. But you know for a guy who didn't go to college, you know who went straight to the MBA from from high school. He was very, very broad. Had a Fred broad education. Um he was I believe in the last couple of years studying Manchurian spent some time in China, you know, stuff. Oh, yeah, I mean, he was, you know, hey, challenged himself all the time Mentally and physically, we had a reporter sports reporter for. Um, he's actually sports columnist with Francisco Chronicle on in the last hour, and he had talked with Kobe about the advice he started giving to dream on Green, and he said that he ended up being on the phone with him for 30 minutes. He thought it was just going to be a couple of minutes. But there were a number of times when Kobe was giving examples of you know why players would do Certain things or leaders would behave in certain ways. And he said there was a real poetry to the way he spoke in the examples that he gave which were not just really good examples of the point he was trying to make, but that actually were poetry. They were just amazing the way he put words together. Did you see that in Kobe, too? He was very thoughtful. You know, there were times after games when he could be just a closed mouth and clipped as any athlete could be, But generally when you got him away and got in a one on one conversation with him, he was thoughtful. He was smart. He was funny. Um, you know, sometimes probably r rated funny but funny. If you know always, you know, I mean, he could e. I don't mean anything by that. You know, he was just I just mean that he wasn't you know, Lofty? Um, right, you know, stuffed shirt kind of guy. He was He was very human, and it's unfortunate that more people didn't get a chance to see that side of him. I think he was beginning to reveal it. You know, I'm so glad that you joined us today. Cindy Cindy Boren from the Washington Post to give us just this human side of Kobe Bryant. Um, you know, I feel so badly for his family. Certainly I feel bad for everybody who was a fan, everybody who knew him from a distance, but his family and the pain that they're suffering right now has got to be just absolutely almost unbearable. And so we wish them the absolute very best and thank you for pointing out. To us, the real human being that we lost in Kobe Bryant. Thank you. It was my pleasure to talk to you on the set day. All right. This is Cindy Boren. Thank you so much. Cindy. She's with the Washington Post in to go to their website. They've got some great video of Kobe and his daughter of his daughter of Kobe, and they also talked about many of the other people, all of the other people who were also killed in this tragic accident. There were nine people who died in this horrible accident, including a Cindy pointed out there were 3 13 year old girls who perished. All right, we'll be back..
