Kobe Bryant answers odd, fun questions from Brazilian reporter

For once, Kobe Bryant did not address anything surrounding his health, the Lakers’ offseason plans or their uncertain future.

As the Lakers’ star continued to soak in the scene at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, Bryant extended his media exposure to Brazilian reporters that hardly want to know about the X’s and O’s or purple and gold. Instead, as scene in the video above beginning at the 3:05 mark, an entertaining Brazilian reporter peppered Bryant about whether NBA players abstain from sex before the Finals, how fun are NBA parties and rapid-fire answers to random basketball questions.

The most hilarious bit entails Bryant incredulous look and tone when asked if he prefers playing with Shaquille O’Neal or Dwight Howard.

“Shaq,” Bryant said somewhat dismissively. Other than that, Bryant showed off his playful side regarding questions he rarely fields during the NBA season.
