“I wanted to be Pelé” – Kobe Bryant in Brazil at the Confederations Cup

In this sit down, which is relatively long, he goes over a myriad of topics including the result of the NBA Finals, some of the things that the Lakers can do to get back to a championship side, and the status of his injury. Interestingly enough he talks about how he is in communication with David Beckham, who suffered an achilles injury as well, and how his treatment and therapy was.

After they get a lot of the basketball talk, they get in to his fandom with the game of soccer, players he is a fan of and what he thinks the result will be. Its pretty difficult to come up with a winner since he is such a fan of Brazilian soccer, but also could never root against Italy, given that he grew up in the country.
