Kobe Bryant is one of the most beloved Los Angeles Lakers of all-time, while rookie Lonzo Ball is only a couple of months into his NBA career, and he’s already one of the most polarizing.

Like it or not, the Big Ball Brand story, from LaVar to Lonzo to LaMelo to LiAngelo, is one of the biggest talking points in sports today. LaVar has Donald Trump beefing with him, so in a lot of ways, the entire narrative here transcends the sports world, but regardless of what box you want to put Big Baller Brand in, it’s only natural that a Lakers icon like Kobe would be asked about Lonzo and the family in every interview he gives these days. That’s how the internet works.

In an interview Kobe Bryant did with Chris McGee on Spectrum SportsNet’s ‘Connected With‘, he answered the standard Lonzo questions with a fair amount of detail. In the interest of giving proper context, because that is ultimately what we’re talking about here, I’m going to drop Bryant’s answers below.
