VIDEO: Kobe Bryant Discusses His ‘Healthy Competition’ With LeBron

Kobe Bryant was voted as an All-Star for the 16th time this season, but had to sit out due to his fractured knee. Instead, Kobe Bryant joined commentators Marv Albert and Reggie Miller for an in-game interview during Sunday’s battle between the East and the West.

Kobe showed his excitement about seeing his fellow NBA stars play, admitting he always looks forward to watching Kevin Durant, James Harden, and Russell Westbrook play.

Miller and Albert also talked NBA Mount Rushmore with Bryant, in which Bryant said he would not be bothered a bit if Lebron was on there and he was not. He further commented on what he would refer to as the “healthy competition” between the two and describe the intensity of their defensive match up.

The interview concluded with jokes between Miller and Bryant regarding their fight in 2002. The 4-time MVP admitted to having no idea as to what even started the fight in the first place which drew laughter from the commentators. Kobe still maintained to draw much attention in an All-Star game he would not be able to play in.
