Lakers Post-Game: Jeremy Lin Calls Kobe Bryant A ‘Watchdog’ (VIDEO)

The Los Angeles Lakers lost in overtime to the Phoenix Suns on Tuesday night, but once Kobe Bryant was pulled halfway through overtime to rest up, fans were reminded that it was just a preseason game.

Jeremy Lin was back on the court for the first time since spraining his ankle and after the game Bryant touched on what a difference it made to have Lin back:

Jeremy Lin makes a big difference – creating shots for others, somebody else that can penetrate and make plays for others and put pressure on the defense. It makes a really big difference.”

After the game, Lin also talked in depth about the types of things Bryant was teaching him on the court, details that Lin says he would have never even thought about if Bryant hadn’t mentioned it. For those specific tips, check out our video above.
