Kobe Bryant may be a Los Angeles Lakers legend, but he’s reached out to help a Boston Celtics superstar in a time of need. On the heels of a spectacular performance against the Washington Wizards on Tuesday in Game 2 of the East semifinals, Celtics point guard Isaiah Thomas revealed that he’s gotten some help breaking down film from Bryant.
Thomas did get a bit coy when it came to specifics. A reporter asked what exactly Kobe sees that might be different than other players, but he didn’t get much of an answer.
“I’m not going to tell you,” Thomas said with a smile. “He wouldn’t want me to do that.” He did say, though, that the film sessions prove to him that Bryant simply saw the game better than other players.
