Kobe Bryant: ‘He Was Like Conan’
(Kobe) Bryant was all smiles in Sacramento’s cramped visiting locker room, saying he did not expect it to be his final game there because he expects the team to stay in California’s capital city rather than relocate to Seattle.
Bryant said he met Chamberlain when he was about 8 years old in Philadelphia and long held the Lakers legend in the highest esteem.
”He was like Conan the Barbarian,” Bryant said. ”That was the most impressive thing to me. He was just a warm-hearted gentleman.”
