VIDEO: Rick Fox interviews Kobe Bryant for NBA TV

Kobe celebrates against Kings in 2001

They won three NBA championships together, so it’s no surprise that Kobe Bryant and Rick Fox have great chemistry together, even if it’s just for a five minute interview for NBA TV.

Fox caught up with the Black Mamba at the Lakers’ Media Day on Saturday, and of course, Bryant’s ex-teammate asked about his Achilles. Kobe talked about his recovery and actually wouldn’t rule out playing in any pre-season games. He also discussed the team’s upcoming trip to China and his usual championship aspirations.

Oh, and it’s worth watching until the end of the interview as Kobe reveals which nickname he’d like on the back of his jersey.

What do you think?
