Kobe Bryant has been spending his last few walking days in the beautiful Brazil meeting with basketball legends like Oscar Schmidt and doing interviews.  In this ESPN interview, Kobe talks about Jordan, David Beckham, soccer, his injury, the future of the Lakers and the great Oscar Schmidt.


“Oscar Schmidt was the guy when I grew up [in Italy],” said Bryant. “He was 35-40 points every night. He was just automatic. I remember just watching him play and saying, ‘Man if I can shoot like that, at his height [6 feet 9] and to be able to handle the ball at his size.'”
