Spike Lee gets up close and personal with Kobe Bryant
While everyone else was watching the Lakers demolish the undermanned Rockets last night, I saw Kobe Bryant play an entirely different basketball game--a 2008 playoff game against the San Antonio Spurs that is the centerpiece of "Kobe Doin' Work," the new Spike Lee film about Bryant that premieres Saturday night on ESPN. It's for basketball junkies only, but the film gave me--a die-hard Celtics fan--a fresh insight into Bryant, who had until now struck me as something of an arrogant, it's all-about-me kind of superstar.

I enjoyed it alot. It was nice to see his thoughts during the games, and what goes on alot with the team on the floor.

I thought it was terrible. I thought it was going to be a "day in the life" type show. Following him from breakfast until right after the game.

While I enjoyed the locker footage hearing the Zen Master, the rest of the stuff was boring.
This is also show in theaters, right? No way in hell I'd pay $9 for it.

Definitely, the biggest problem was not enough lockeroom footage. It would've been cool to see how the team prepares and how Phil really coaches.

It was the perfect salve for his extreme narcissism tho.
