During halftime of Game 1, the on-air festivities included a great segment with Kobe Bryant watching film of NBA greats with Jackie MacMullen, explaining what he's drawn to from the legends to benefit his own game.
Unfortunately, the TV's in the upper press level at Staples have the audio turned completely down, so I didn't actually get a chance to see it (hear it, technically) until this afternoon. I figure I can't be the only one, so just in case:
Don't miss, too, the accompanying piece from MacMullen. Kobe has noted before some of the different influences on his game, but he articulates it with great clarity here.
