Bryant made an appearance on Stephen A. Smith’s show on ESPN radio on Friday to talk about a number of different topics one of which being whether he’d offer his advice if asked by the Lakers brass: “I’m always around behind the scenes for Jeanie, Jimmy, and the entire Buss family if they need assistance or if it be to reach out or call for advice and things of that nature,” Bryant told Smith. “Now, being front and center about it, it’s not something that is really my cup of tea. I’d rather be behind the scenes and focus on the content I’m creating because that’s where my passion truly lies, but the Buss family knows that I’m always a phone call away.”

ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith has some thoughts about Ayesha Curry’s decision to tweet that the NBA “is absolutely rigged” after her husband, Warriors guard Steph Curry, fouled out during Golden State’s loss to the Cavaliers on Thursday. They’re rather inane thoughts, but they’re documented below. Proceed at your own risk. “If that was Savannah, LeBron’s wife. If that were Gloria, LeBron’s mother. What would we be saying?” Smith asked on Friday’s episode of First Take. “LeBron James has a mom and has a wife, has kids, great guy, an even greater ambassador of the game of basketball than Steph Curry because he’s done it over the test of time. Wonderful, beautiful father. And I’ve got news for you: As beautiful as everyone wants to say Ayesha Curry is, and she is, Savannah is something special. I’m here to tell you something right now. Ain’t a man alive, particularly a black man, that’s going to look at LeBron James’s wife and not say that that woman ain’t gorgeous. She’s wonderful inside and out. She sits there, she doesn’t bring any attention to herself. She never tweets and goes out there and calls out the league and stuff like that. And nobody — nobody — is more scrutinized than her husband. But yet, she thinks about how she represents him, and as a result, she doesn’t do that.”
