Kobe Bryant remains the face of the Los Angeles Lakers despite their many moves in recent years to both acquire and send off All-Stars, and he'll continue to embrace this role until he retires. Following a wild week for news that included Steve Nash coming to the Lakers and Dwight Howard rumors going left and right as always, Bryant went on SportsCenter and discussed a wide range of topics.
The first thing Bryant talked about was Howard and what he hopes happens for the big man.

He then talked about Steve Nash and his expectations next year:

Finally, are the Lakers done making moves this offseason?

It'll be an interesting season in L.A. to say the very least.
