“It’s a little like Dorothy with the Tin Man, the Scarecrow and the Cowardly Lion,” Keane says. “There are aspects of her in all those characters, and there are aspects of him in all these characters, even if he doesn’t know it. They’re like an exploded Kobe. They’ve all got a little piece of him.” You can sense his vulnerability in Puny Pete, which he often disguised, and his conviction through B.B. LaBelle, which he never did. In “Coaches Are People Too,” a duet sung by Kimberly and Clark, Kobe seems less like the guy Mike D’Antoni knew, and more like the one Gianna does: “They may yell and scream, they may blow their whistle. They may throw their clipboard like a ballistic missile. But coaching is hard, that’s a matter of fact. Takes time, takes patience, it’s like herding cats.”
Mychal Thompson, a former power forward who won two championships with the “Showtime”-era Lakers of the late 1980s, said he understood why so many fans still hold Bryant in such high regard. “Oh, that’s easy, man: his passion, his competitiveness and his desire to win,” Thompson said in a telephone interview. “He gave fans every ounce he had. Kobe would never take a night off. And if you asked him if he wanted to rest, he would look at you like you’re crazy.”

After seeing his LeBron James mural vandalized for the second time in five days, Jonas Never opted to put an end to what had become an apparent hot-button topic among some fans. Never told ESPN he covered the mural with white paint Wednesday not long after a vandal had splattered yellow paint on his work, which featured James in a Los Angeles Lakers jersey on a wall at the Baby Blues BBQ restaurant in Venice. “I thought I had learned a long time ago to never touch religion or politics,” said Never, the Los Angeles-based muralist who has also designed murals of the late Anthony Bourdain and Stuart Scott among many others. “I guess it is never touch religion, politics or anyone against Kobe,” Never cracked.
