“He’s a great student of the game and understands how to look at guys and not do it in a confrontational manner, but see what they have to do to improve,’’ Corbin said.
Bryant still has enough skills that he can hold his own in one-on-one drills with various players on the team. He can still fill it up from outside and was proud of the fact that he beat “The Legend” — Jeff Hornacek — in a shooting contest earlier in the week. But he has no illusions that he could be playing in the NBA.
“I’m competitive and pride myself on being in shape, but I’m past that, the NBA phase,’’ he said.
So does Bryant envision himself coaching in the NBA someday?
“Who knows — I don’t know,’’ he said. “I’m just taking it one day at a time and learning and doing as much as I can for the Jazz organization. The most important job is the one I have now and I try to learn as much as I can each day.’’
