With Kobe Bryant immobile for 2 weeks following successful surgery to repair his torn Achilles tendon, he won’t be able to attend Lakers games. But Coach Kobe vowed to offer tips at halftime via telephone – and that he did on Sunday evening when he called Pau Gasol during halftime vs. the Spurs.

Gasol struggled offensively in the first half, going 1 for 10 from the field and 1 of 2 from the line and Bryant told him to “be aggressive” in the second half. Anything else, Gasol wasn’t sharing.
