Lakers legend Kobe Bryant spoke to high school students at a We Rise LA event.  The organization says it exists to mentor youth to become future mentors.

Kobe was asked about Kanye’s recent controversial statement that “slavery is a choice.”  He disagreed with Kanye’s remarks but told the kids how important freedom of speech is.

Kobe answered a few other questions and went on to talk about his career in the NBA.  I wonder if that trip to Colorado ever came up?  Probably not.
