Lakers guard Kobe Bryant has maintained his silence about Mike Brown becoming the team's head coach. So I figured I'd stop by Sparks practice Friday afternoon to visit Kobe's father, Joe, who's serving as the team's assistant coach under Jennifer Gillom, for some possible answers. Below is the transcript on that subject and a few other Lakers-related topics. What do you think of the Brown hire? That's a good question. I don't know. It could be Mo, Larry or Curly [of the Three Stooges]. If anybody stepped into L.A., it's going to be difficult. It's going to be difficult. Brown won 60-plus....

I like Joe Bryant because he said the same thing I've been telling my friends, ie, laker haters, that MJ had a guaranteed shooter and KB24 has never had that.

Kobe had Glenn Rice, Robert Horry and even Rick Fox as a designated three point shooter.

Not in this recent configuration. Note, when Shannon Brown was burying threes klike Steve Kerr early in the season, the Lakers looked invincible.

Jow Bryant is absolutely correct. When you shoot 3 for 23 from beyond the arc, you will lose. Whether you have Kobe or MJ. It is that simple.

The Lakers Three Blind Mice were a disgraceful lot. And you cannot win with this crew.

Kobe had guys that could hit big shots, but never guys that hit consistent shots that forced people to post Kobe honest. Fox could shoot, Horry could shoot, Fisher could shoot, Rice could, but they wasn't always a consistant threat. Horry and Fisher were clutch, Fox... Ehh...

Yeah, and when those three guys were on the team the Lakers won back-to-back-to-back titles.

And I remember "Downtown Brown" draining threes like it was nobodys business, and also Fisher shooting lights out to start the season. The Lakers looked unstoppable!

LeBron won 60+ games with scrubs in Cleveland and those scrubs played defense and shot threes.

Yeah I see Kobe winning 2 more rings within his last 5-6 years in the. League. He might not be the main option but I think he will get his 7th ring.

Prediction: Kobe will have a BIG bounce back year this coming season (if there is one), then the decline will actually start. I think he can hold on for two more rings to pass MJ. which is his aim. I would never bet against Kobe in the long run.
