Rick Carlisle's 5-year-old daughter on Kobe Bryant: 'That's trouble'

Rick Carlisle is known for his dry humor and for ignoring dumb questions, but like Gregg Popovich, he'll occasionally open up and show a softer side. While Kobe Bryant had to sit out his final matchup against Dirk Nowitzki, Carlisle was asked about the retiring NBA legend and offered up this touching moment with a personal story about his daughter early in Carlisle's Dallas days.

It's a shame we didn't get one more moment of Dirk vs. Kobe, but we'll always appreciate the great head-to-head moments like this.
