I suggest watching the 20 minute Michael Wilbon interview first and then coming back to watch this interview and feature on the teenage rookie.   We get to see Kobe take flight in high school, Brandy to prom and promote Adidas but my favorite part is hearing Jerry West, with confidence, say that Kobe Bryant will be able to get his own shot anytime he wants in the NBA.

Be on the lookout for a lot more rare late 80s-2005 videos on Ballislfe and Vincentda’s VHS Vault as I dig up history before YouTube.
