Kobe Bryant critiques Kemba Walker's game on ESPN's 'Detail"

Kobe Bryant critiques Kemba Walker's game on ESPN's 'Detail"

Kemba Walker was the latest subject of Kobe Bryant's ESPN series "Detail," and he received some constructive criticism from the former Lakers star.

In one clip, Bryant breaks down a play from Team USA's win over the Czech Republic in which Walker takes the ball out near halfcourt multiple times before finally driving to the basket.

"This drives me crazy, though. Like, pulling the ball out like this." Bryant says. "I don't know when this became a thing.

"[Walker's] got the defender on his heels, standing in this tight space we can carry a threat. But now, he backs it all the way back [out to halfcourt]. It's just more work. Now the defense can collapse on you, and you try to manufacture a play out of it vs. your job already being done..."

Watch the clip below:

It wasn't all criticism from Bryant, though. He had plenty of praise for the Celtics guard throughout the "Detail" episode, which you can watch here if you're subscribed to ESPN+.

There's no doubt Walker would appreciate any constructive criticism from an all-time great like Bryant, just as Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum did when the five-time NBA champion broke down their respective games.

Walker has been Team USA's best all-around player in the FIBA World Cup. He finished with 15 points and eight assists in Thursday's blowout victory over Japan.

USA Basketball's next matchup will take place on Saturday at 8:30 a.m. ET vs. Greece.

That's about as accurate as it gets.

As much as it seems Kanter is making the most of quarantine life, he's itching to get back onto the court. He recently expressed concern about the NBA season potentially getting cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic, which especially would be crushing since the C's are in the mix for a title.

Former Celtics star Paul Pierce wants in on virtual game of HORSE

Former Celtics star Paul Pierce wants in on virtual game of HORSE

A virtual game of HORSE? The NBA certainly is trying to get creative amid the coronavirus outbreak.

The NBA and ESPN are working on televising a HORSE competition involving "several high-profile players," according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. The competitors would take shots from their home gyms and have to match those of other players.

Will one of those "high-profile players" be former Boston Celtics star Paul Pierce? It's possible, and he wants in on the competition.

The 10-time All-Star actually could make a splash in the competition -- he shot 44.5 percent from the field and 36.8 percent from beyond the arc in his 19-year NBA career. 

If the 42-year-old ends up competing in the competition, the only thing going against him would be his age. However, if he's anything like Tom Brady then he'll be just fine. 

With the NBA season on pause due to the COVID-19 outbreak, a HORSE competition could be pretty fun to watch.
