Serena Winters of Complex put together a great feature asking reporters who’ve covered Kobe Bryant for their favorite Kobe stories.

Eric Pincus of the Los Angeles Times took the cake:

“There was one thing, years ago, I had two girls and we were talking about how we were going to try to have a third. And, he told me that to have a boy, I need to keep my socks on with my wife…that was his advice. I did not listen, and I have a third girl.”

I highly recommend clicking through for the other anecdotes. It’s a revealing look into the Lakers star from people who’ve gotten a chance to know him better than most.
