Brian Shaw helping Paul George a lot
George began picking Shaw’s brain about Bryant’s work ethic the first day they met.
“How is Kobe in practice? Does he show up early and stay late? What’s his game-day ritual like?” George would always ask Shaw.
The relationship between Shaw and George didn’t really take off, though, until the playoffs last season.
And it wasn’t because of a spectacular play George made or a costly mistake on the court. It was during an afternoon fishing on Shaw’s boat.
“It was me, him and his dad,” Shaw said. “I just got a better feel for him. We talked about any and everything.”
