Jimmy Goldstein talks Kobe Bryant, Lakers and more
SI senior writer Lee Jenkins welcomes NBA superfan Jimmy Goldstein to the Open Floor Podcast to talk about his insatiable love for basketball, Kobe Bryant and the Lakers, fashion and the famous Sheats Goldstein Residence. Goldstein tells Jenkins about the fortune he spends and the lengths he goes to attend postseason games, getting special courtside seats arranged for him during the playoffs, bringing models to games and why he'll fly coach during his playoff tour. Later, they discuss his rocky relationship with Bryant, NBA players approaching him and greeting him before games, sitting courtside at Lakers game back when it only cost $15, chasing girls with Wilt Chamberlain and much more.
