NBC’s Chris Collinsworth prods Basketball player Kobe Bryant (wink, wink, nudge, nudge) with an audible sneer to remember that public expressions of patriotism are no longer appropriate.
Collinsworth: Is that a â€˜coolâ€™ thing to say, in this day and age? That you love your country, and that youâ€™re fighting for the red, white and blue? It seems sort of like a day gone by(?)
Bryant: No, itâ€™s a cool thing for me to say. I feel great about it, and Iâ€™m not ashamed to say it. I mean, this is a tremendous honor.
