Kobe Bryant says many NBA players have asked for advice

  Kobe Bryant says many NBA players have asked for advice Retired Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant says he talks with many NBA players who seek his advice and wisdom. Boston Celtics guard Isaiah Thomas recently said that he and Bryant have been texting and going over film after playoff games. Thomas and the Celtics are locked in a heated playoff battle with the Washington Wizards. That Eastern Conference Semifinal matchup is tied at two games apiece. "I'm around for all the guys," Bryant said to ESPN.com. "Anybody can reach out. It's an open book." He scoffs at the idea that former Laker should be helping a Celtic in any way. "Well that's complete nonsense," Bryant said. "I love watching IT play. Is he a superstar? I don't even know what that means. All I know is he goes out and competes every single night. He's been playing at a level rarely seen. Bryant says he also talks to Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving, Houston Rockets guard James Harden, Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook, and Utah Jazz guard Gordon Hayward. Since retiring at the end of last season after 20 seasons with the Lakers, Bryant has been focused on his many business projects, "I don't miss it -- not even a little," Bryant says. "It's crazy, right? I love what I'm doing right now. I'm all in on my studio projects." - Scooby Axson This article was originally published on SI.

Kobe Bryant is still as clutch as ever.

The five-time NBA Champion put his abilities to the test on Thursday afternoon, this time by helping a high school class that had made a deal with their teacher to avoid taking their final exam. Well, just as long as they received a retweet from the Laker legend.

Bryant, like so many times before, came to the rescue while providing his own set of expectations.

Whether the brave individual has an “A” or not might not matter, but it’s safe to think a lot of kids will continue to yell “KOBE” as they chuck their study notes in the trash.
