Add Kobe Bryant to the lengthy list of people who have publicly criticized Kanye West for his comments that slavery was a choice. When asked by a student during a recent visit to a Los Angeles high school how West’s comments made him feel, Bryant was candid in his response. “I’m sure the same way everybody else here in this room feels: What the hell are you talking about?” Bryant said. “I think that was my reaction, as is everybody else’s reaction.”
It’s also great because Lakers general manager Rob Pelinka shared a fantastic story about how this Genius Series came to be, involving Kobe Bryant, “The Dark Knight” and Madison Square Garden: “There was one time when Kobe, who I worked with for 18 years, was going back to play in Madison Square Garden, and he had just seen ‘The Dark Knight,’” said Pelinka. “Obviously, you guys saw that movie, and he’s like, ‘Hey, hook me up with dinner with Heath Ledger, because he got so locked in to that role. I want to know how he mentally went there.’ So, he had dinner with Heath, and he talked about how he locks in for a role. And Kobe used some of that in his game against the Knicks.”
