In an interview with The Undefeated, Bryant told Jemele Hill he would have followed Colin Kaepernick's cue and is 'sure I would have gotten some flak for it'

Bryant praised Kaepernick's bravery, calling the former 49ers quarterback's protests "'the epitome of doing what he believes is right" and says of the backlash "things have been taken out of context"

NBA commissioner Adam Silver said before the current NBA season that he expected players to stand for the anthem.

Do you think Kobe would have joined the protests?  Do you expect protests to continue through 2018?
