Mamba Moments Episode 12 - Roy Firestone, A GOAT Interviewer

Mamba Moments

This episode of Mamba Moments features Roy Firestone, a man who was referred to by Sports Illustrated as, "The best interviewer in the business," having conducted over 5,000 interviews with individuals such as Kobe Bryant, Michael Jordan, Tom Brady and Muhammad Ali. Roy shares some amazing new Kobe stories such as Kobe's budding curiosity when lightning struck as Roy conducted Kobe's first-ever interview in Los Angeles. Roy was so deeply impacted by Kobe that he adopted a dog and named him Kobe before even writing a children's book, "Kobe and a Boy Named Roy." Roy also shares incredible insight into Kobe Bryant and Michael Jordan having had a relationship with both of them, including a story of Kobe studying and adopting Jordan's speaking dialect. We even shared our thoughts on the current Lakers playoff run as Kobe's spirit always looms large over the purple and gold. Any and all proceeds I personally make will go to the Mamba and Mambacita Sports Foundation so remember to download, subscribe and review.
