Kobe Says He’d Kneel During Anthem If Still In The League


If he was still an active player in the NBA, former Los Angeles Laker Kobe Bryant says he’d kneel during the playing of the national anthem.

Bryant said during a recent appearance on The Hollywood Reporter’s “Awards Chatter” podcast that he’d take a knee during “The Star-Spangled Banner,” according to ESPN’s Ohm Youngmisuk.

He was then asked what he would convey to President Donald Trump if he had the opportunity to speak with him one on one.

“Focus on serving, not leading,” said Bryant.

When Trump made waves after uninviting Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry to the White House, Bryant joined a number of other basketball stars in openly criticizing the POTUS.

The Lakers intend to lock arms during the anthem throughout the upcoming regular season.
