It's not very often young players earn the praise of Kobe Bryant, which is why many in the pro basketball community seemed to notice last month when Bryant sought out Derrick Rose for a hug and some kinds words after the Bulls' 98-91 loss in Los Angeles.

"I can tell when a player truly wants to be better and does what it takes to improve," Bryant said Thursday, one night before the rematch in Chicago. "It was a quality I had when I was growing up. … I admire that about him. I could really see it from last year to this year."

It's difficult to think of Kobe as an elder statesman, but at 32 years old and in his 15th season, his blessing now means every bit as much as Michael Jordan's did in the late 1990s, when Bryant was a young pup. And Rose has caught his eye, which is one of the reasons Friday night's meeting is a big deal. We've seen enough to know now, six weeks into the season, that D-Rose wasn't being presumptuous when he essentially asked in the preseason, "Why not me?" for MVP.

"He's got a long-range ball now," Bryant said. "He can pop behind the pick and shoot the jumper. He can pull up off the dribble and shoot it, and him getting to the rim goes unquestioned. He's putting the time in the gym, and I certainly respect that."

He had done all he could to help the Wizards during their 115-108 loss to the Lakers Tuesday night at Staples Center.

Now here was Bryant, one of the games' all-time greats, wanting to share some words with Wall on the court before he went to his locker room.

"I think he has a lot of talent and lot of potential," Bryant said. "I'm very hopeful when I see guys like that that can carry the league for years to come. I just want guys like that to just continue to work and stay focused."

Wall looked stunned to see Bryant call him over, hug him and to whisper in his ear.

"It kind of surprised me," Wall said. "Most of the time you see a star like that … they usually go back to the locker room. But for him to come over there, it meant a whole lot. I looked up to him ever since I was in middle school and in high school watching him play. So it was really a great honor."

It's crazy to think... John Wall and Derrick Rose were 6-8 years old when Kobe was a rookie in the league.

yeah he's nice, very high basketball I.Q player, but I haven't seen much of him in the mold of creating his own jumper, hitting step backs, fade aways, just the classic dominant stuff SG's of years past use to do.. Not a knock against Feilds, he seems to do all the right things, that are in the limits of his game.. Reminds me alot of Shane Battier.
