Ben Rohrbach

Kobe to @Chris Ballard: "Tony Allen is a big favorite of mine. Just how he plays and what he does." Again: How did C's let him get away?

Greg Anthony

Kobe Bryant is 36 today. Rik Smits is 48. Kind of crazy Smits is only 12 years older than Bryant.

Trey Kerby

Crazy to think Kobe Bryant wore the big hat before Pharrell. Truly an inspiration. Happy bday. http://t.co/YbhLh4zoOV

You’re doing the whole *** thing wrong. RT @Emiliano Carchia: Nash describes Kobe in 3 words: 'Mother fuck*** ass****' bit.ly/1vweVjQ

Jabari Davis

And for those fans still holding on to what was really a manufactured media rivalry, LBJ has always shown Kobe the utmost respect. Always.

Jabari Davis

From KD/Westbrook to Paul George to Harden or BJennings (and plenty in between) the level of respect they express about KB is off the charts

Jabari Davis

Most of your favorite (current) NBA players grew up watching, studying and/or idolizing Kobe. There's that. Pretty crazy dynamic.

Bruno Altieri

Kobe Bryant cumple 36 años. "81, el número imposible". Recordamos su momento eterno en ESPN. espndeportes.com/news/story?id=…

Jabari Davis

The older, wiser, and more refined version of Bean has been fantastic, but 2000-2007ish Kobe was simply a different beast.

Jabari Davis

Just like I wish I could have seen the older greats like Russell/Wilt/BigO or an in-prime KAJ, you missed out if you didn't catch Young Kobe

Polo Bustamante

Happy Birthday @Kobe Bryant! To me, you will always be the greatest player of my generation. #Mamba #Legend http://t.co/rpsOFlUQVj

Evan Dunlap

Please visit @Chris Ballard's timeline for enlightening quotes by Kobe, w/ a cameo from Tony Allen

Kamenetzky Brothers

For more good from Kobe he had to leave on the cutting room floor, go check out @Chris Ballard 's timeline. BK

Chris Ballard

KB:"As athletes, you get the pressure of playing for the love of the game.Of course we do.But do owners buy teams for the love of the game?"

Chris Ballard

And last one, from Kobe talking about the pressure for players to take less $$ to help a team win, when he feels that's unfair.... (contd)

Chris Ballard

But my favorite quote from Tony, being Tony, on Kobe: “Ain’t no scouting report for a guy who scored 82 points in a game!"

Chris Ballard

Tony Allen also called Kobe: “the closest thing to Jordan in my era" and "I get to be able to tell the story that I got to guard that guy.”

Chris Ballard

Asked KB which players he thought most maxed out their natural talent. Couple you'd expect - KD and LeBron. Then he said two other names...

Chris Ballard

Kobe: "There are certain guys that if you go back and look at guys I’ve gotten along with, they’re all cut from that cloth. All of them."

Chris Ballard

Lakers PT guru Judy Seto on Kobe's acumen: "He could speak to another medical professional and keep up with the conversation no problem."
