Hi guys, i said this before i'm from Turkey. Kobe is here in Istanbul for an advertisement video for Turkish Airlines with F.C Barcelona soccer superstar Lionel Messi.

There were some questions to him, and here is his answers;

On Dwight Howard;
--He is a great player, we certainly got a lot stronger. But almost always winning a c'ship gets harder year by year. Last year we couldn't win this year will be harder.

on 92 dream team vs 12 London Team

-- I got this question before in USA, dream team was a team we all looked up to and admire, so it is hard to say we could beat them. But on the other hand, we are talking about one game here, anything can happen in one game, it's equally hard to say that we have no chance with the group we had in London, with players like LeBron, Durant and others i like our chances. But we would have a real hard time against their size and bigs, i can't ignore that.

On Turkish NBA players

-- Enes Kanter has star potential, he just needs time. Ersan Ilyasova is great both offensively and defensively, he is an admirable player.

On playing for team USA again

-- I don't think i'll play that long, i don't think so.

Good. What's to discuss here? He didn't say anything new. This is a Lakers forum thread.

Kanter just needs some PT definitely, doesn't get much under Jefferson. Ilyasova is a great 3 point shooter, very undderated all-around player. Turkoglu and Okur also used to be great.

I can't be sure about Kanter, couldn't watch him that much honestly, but i wish what Kobe sees in him is true. Ersan on the other hand is really a very very good player, if Monta and Jennings don't go nuts with their shooting i expect a great year from Ersan.
