During an hour-long interview with Jimmy Kimmel last week, Kobe Bryant revealed the names of the funniest, smelliest and most missed guys he’s ever played with:
[pullquote]Kimmel: Who is the funniest guy you ever played with?
Bryant: Shaq and Gary Payton, by far.
Kimmel: Who’s the smelliest player you’ve ever played with?
Bryant: Brian Grant because of his dreads.
Kimmel: If you could pick one player to join you on the Lakers, anybody, who would you pick?
Bryant: I’d take Derek Fisher back. That’s my guy. We came in this thing together, we won five titles together.
Kimmel: Even though he’s 70-years-old?
Bryant: S*** man, I’m 65![/pullquote]
Payton was only around for one season – so he must’ve been really funny to make the list along with Shaq – and Grant only played with the Lakers for one year, so he must’ve been really smelly.
As for Fish, as much as I’d love to see him back in L.A. as a player, I think it’d be best if he was an assistant coach for the purple and gold at this point.
