(Kobe) Bryant confirms he has had “many conversations” during the playoffs with (Isaiah) Thomas, but says the Celtics star is just one of many current NBA stars who have reached out to him for advice.

Bryant says he also talks regularly with Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving, MVP candidates James Harden and Russell Westbrook, and Utah Jazz star Gordon Hayward, whom Bryant spent three days training with in Orange County last summer.

“I’m around for all the guys,” Bryant tells ESPN.com. “Anybody can reach out. It’s an open book.”
