08:06 AM ET 02.04 | Times are a' changin' for Kobe Bryant, who understands now more than ever that he's nearing the end of an illustrious career. "I find myself talking sometimes and I can't believe what I just said," he says with a hearty laugh. "Realistically I have only one year left, so I'm trying to enjoy myself." ... "I've taken the reins off now. I'm more open, hence Twitter. I'm at peace." So ask him anything, and he obliges. "Are you worried Howard might leave, jeopardizing a chance to win another ring, if he's not a fan of Mike D'Antoni's coaching?" "Yeah, a little bit," Kobe says. ... "Is D'Antoni the right coach?" There's a long pause. "I don't think a coach becomes the right coach until he wins a championship."

I never thought he could let himself go, become more human. I don't mind, good job Kobe.
