Kobe on Blake and yesterday's incident:
"It's just the right thing to do," he said of Griffin playing until the final buzzer regardless of the score. "You've got to play all the way through. You play until the final buzzer sounds. It's as simple as that. That's the way I grew up playing. That's the right way to play."
Should Blake be on the All-Star Team?
"He should be an All-Star," Bryant said when asked about Griffin. "It's a joke for people not to consider him an All-Star. He should be. He has what, 30 straight double-doubles? What more do you want from a power forward? What more do you want from him?"
