Jerry West: Kobe didn’t look like same player, possibly came back too soon
Hall of Famer Jerry West joined the show to talk about Kobe Bryant’s recent injury and more.
West had interesting comments on Kobe Bryant. “To me he didn’t look like the same player,” West said. “His shooting will always be there. I think if he had rested a couple of months we might have seen a different Kobe Bryant.” West suggested Bryant probably would have been wise to wait a couple of months.
West said that Bryant’s mindset won’t help him get healthy. “He doesn’t take no for an answer,” West said. “He’s set in his ways.”
West doesn’t buy Warriors coach Mark Jackson’s claim that Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson are the best outside-shooting backcourt duo of all time. “To me a quality of work over a period of time is going to determine how you view these things,” West said.
