"I’m very impressed with him. Very impressed. I’m not going to BS you. He’s very detail-oriented. His practices are very methodical in nature. He goes from one thing to the next thing. You know, he’s punching a clock, and it’s very high energy. It’s a high motor type of practice, a physical practice, a competitive practice, and I like it."
"I really want to win for him in the worst way, because I see how much he works and I see how much he wants it. I hear the criticism he takes, and I believe it to be unwarranted. It makes me want to work even harder than I already am."
- Kobe Bryant on Mike Brown
