Yea, I'd like to hear what he has to say. He was very emotional after the playoff game. I didn't think he would of even granted an interview but again its KOBE...... "DA-MAN"

I'm glad it took this long for Kobe to get an interview set up. But on Rome is Burning?? He's prolly gonna try to diss Kobe left and right, but Kobe handles himself great, and I luv that about him.

whats this JIM ROME? lol... his moto " have a take don't suck"
Yea, I'd like to hear the questions he'll be asking KOBE. His show is based in the L.A. area and he has been somewhat supportive of the LAKERS in the past. I will be an interesting show to see. I wonder if KOBE is already BUFFER for next season.

I want to hear ROME ask KOBE why he didn't opt for signing an extension. I know he going to be asked about SHAQ's weight.

Kobe was 230 for THIS season. He gained 20 lbs and last season he was 210-215. so this season he was 230-235. That is why he was able to do better from downtown, more strength. If he goes much past 240, he might wind up playing some PF for us...

Yes, I agree with Snakell. You add more weight, he'll be a more suitable foward, and don't forget he gets quicker, not fatter.

As for Rome, Rome is the bomb diggety, man do I love that man, and I can't wait to hear what Kobe sais! Someone (If I don't beat you to it) post a transcript of the convo after it airs, thanks.

For those of you who weren't able to see it, I'll try to summarize for you real quick:

Rome asked some tough questions but Kobe answered them all very well. Here is a summary:

Rome: Shaq got a late start because he put off having surgery done in the summer on his toe. Was the team hurt by that decision and his failure to really get into the sort of shape he needed to be in throughout the year?
Kobe:No, not really, I think from past experiences we've kinda learned that Shaq gets in shape as the season progresses. This season has just been injury after injury. So, when he came back from having his toe surgery , he started working himself into shape. Then once he got to the point when he was in shape then he started having knee problems. And his knee problems kinda plauged him the rest of the season.

Rome:Well of course the knee problems could be a result, not that I'm a doctor of his extra weight. See Kobe, you personally have never approached it that way, you show up from day one in shape. You don't use the regular season to get into shape, so is that good enough for him to do that?

Kobe:I don't know, I mean every athlete is different, in Shaq's case he's so dominate at being seven foot one and 300 whatever pounds , he can overpower people but we've seen when he's in ultimate shape in our first championship run he just completely ran through the entire league. He was lean, he was cut, and he just completely dominated the game as nobody has dominated it since Wilt Chamberlin.

Kobe went on to say that he and Shaq spoke on the phone the day after being eliminated and that they spoke about how much it hurt to loose and how they are going to come back next year ready to win another title.

Kobe said that he doesn't really care which FA's come in but that we need a power forward that can defend the PF's in the western conference. Also, that we need to get younger, more athletic and quicker. Rome asked if he is consulted about off season moves and he said-"Oh, absolutely." He said he will add his input but he trusts the front office to make the right decisions.

When asked why he hasn't signed the contract extension Kobe said that he likes being patient and meticulous. He went on to say- "Obviously L.A. is the place that I wanna be for the rest of my career...........It was a dream come true when I got drafted and traded here to Los Angeles and I put that purple and gold armor on. Its still a dream to this day, hopefully I will play out the rest of my career here."

Thanx 4 summin it up.. I think I missed it on the re-play!! Does it come on Wednesday possibly!!!?? Man..

Another Laker interview on back to back days.. From what I read, I'm glad he wants to stay in LA... I'm glad Kobe and Shaq talked the day after... Now they heard the pain in their voices, and can hopefully do some training together in the offseason.. We all would like to see Shaq pounds lighter so he can dominate on both ends of the court, and run transition D.

I was dissapointed with the interview. He answered the questions in a very general way, he was not specific at all. He gave the very standard Kobe answers.
