D’Angelo Russell, on the other hand, was one of the summer league’s best players, and Kobe has already seen some growth in Russell’s game since the regular season ended. “There’s certain things he’s really picked up on,” Bryant said. “Body positioning, using his size to be able to get to places. Recognizing defensive packages and where to position guys on the floor. He’s developed very nicely over the summer.”
It’s understandable that Kobe is having some trouble moving on. He’s even offered to mentor any young Lakers player who desires some extra coaching or wants to be yelled at by an all-time great. He said in an interview with TWC Sportsnet: “I would love to come by. I’ve spoken with Luke several times, Shaw as well. I let the players know that I’m always around, man. I’m always around. If they wanna come out, and work out, wake up early in the morning to work out, walk them through some things.”
