Kobe Bryant is probably a great person to turn to for a number of things. For example, if you want advice on how to score a ton of points, or if you want to look to someone for guidance on how to get on a track with Brian McKnight, Kobe’s a good source of information.
For Kyrie Irving, Kobe was a good person to turn to when he wanted to know the best way to co-exist with a superstar teammate who is seven years older than him. In a new story by ESPN’s Dave McMenamin, Irving revealed that he didn’t want his relationship with LeBron James to be analogous to the infamous relationship that Kobe had with Shaquille O’Neal.
So Irving did what anyone would do – he turned Kobe into one of his mentors.
