The Lakers’ media day is tomorrow, yet Kobe Bryant is still in Dubai. Don’t worry, though, he’ll be back in time to meet with the media in Los Angeles on Saturday.

Even so, he’s still meeting with reporters on the other side of the world and he caught up with Dubai’s Yahoo! affiliate to discuss his recovery from the torn Achilles, which player he’d like to join the Lakers and his favorite championship ring.

Oh, and the woman who interviewed the Black Mamba was named Miss Australia in 2012. Being Kobe Bryant is awesome.
