And you’ll know it because you prepared for this moment.’“Only Kobe would say and describe it in that way.”Steve Nash, himself a cerebral basketball mind, said on the TNT broadcast that he loved the way his adversary-turned-teammate put things. Because it always made him think.“I remember after we beat him in the ’06 in the playoffs, we were at a Nike shoot together and he came to me and he said, ‘How do you trust your teammates?’ ” Nash recalled. “And inside, I thought, first of all, that’s a sign of respect. And I thought to myself, with a smile, ‘Well, I have to trust my teammates, ’cause I ain’t anywhere near the player you are…’“But when I walked away from the conversation, I have to admit I went, ‘Was he Jedi mind-tricking me?’ Or was he telling me, ‘Just so we’re clear on the ledger, you had a better team.’“I love this about the Kobe Bryant. I love this about Kobe Bryant!”So many memories.“One of my favorite moments is All-Star weekend, his last All-Star,” said Dwyane Wade, a superstar opponent and good friend of Bryant’s, on TNT. “My son is on a court rebounding for us and Kobe says, ‘Zaire, come down here.’ And Zaire looks at me and he’s nervous like, ‘Should I go?’“And I say, ‘You better go get your Kobe moment!’ ”— Mirjam SwansonEditor’s note: Thanks for reading the Purple & Bold Lakers newsletter.

Such great impact.Derek Fisher, pushing bravely forward, as Kobe Bryant would expect, took a few minutes Tuesday to call and talk about about his longtime Laker teammate, touching on what he learned during their time together, lessons thatFisher tries to implement now as head coach of the L.A. Sparks.It was a gift, Fisher said, “having been able to see what an athlete is capable of when they really dedicate and commit themselves to their craft, to being the greatest player and the best version of themselves that’s humanly possible. I saw it on a daily basis and so there’s no excuse for the rest of us to act like it’s not possible: I’ve seen a human being do it.

He inspired me, he inspired me to want to be better. He motivated me to work harder. Just his mentality and the way he carried himself on the court, how he took the game and his craft so seriously, and how he continuously worked — his work ethic is something I’ll never forget.”All that work was preparation to be able to perform, beautifully, when the moment was right.“In ’08, we made the playoffs and I was in practice and I get out and I have this crazy voicemail,” said Sparks star Candace Parker during TNT’s emotional “Remembering Kobe” special that happened Tuesday night inside Staples Center as fans continued to gather to mourn outside.
