Bryant also spoke about President Barack Obama and according to Lakers Nation reporter Serena Winters, Bryant has a lot of confidence in the President’s basketball skills:

Bryant, of course, was not attempting to insult the current Lakers roster, but rather compliment the President’s skills. Obama is a known basketball fan who watches as many games as he can. Obama is also known to invite NBA players during the off-season to play pickup games.
While Bryant is a well-known trash talker, as Nick Young will tell you, he also knows the line and what buttons he can and can not press.
Like many African-American athletes, Bryant has a lot of respect and admiration for Obama as a person and a leader.
It is fun to think about what Obama would look like in a Lakers uniform. The Lakers could use an extra point guard right now. Maybe Obama is the answer.
