    There are many reasons why Kobe is the best, but here's one: Even after retirement, he's still waking up at 4-5AM and getting his workouts in…you can bring up stats, rings, etc. Kobe had true love and passion for the game and for all out rise and grind hard work. Even when he was winning rings in June, he was back in the gym 2 weeks later putting in work like he had just lost the finals. Work ethic. period.

    " your up 2-0 Why aren't you happy"
    " the Job isnt finish what is their to be happy about" difference between Kobe and Lebron theirs reason why he won more rings if Bron had that mentality he would have won 2011 and 2014

    Kobe along with his Airness are my inspirations. I started playing basketball just this year, nothing but hard work. Hurricane Harvey? No problem, still grinding outside. Rare snow in Texas? Oh well, that won't cool my heat.

  • Slender morph

    he is a real life genius in and off the court

  • I shot at least 400 shots a day when i was a kid because my mommy said i couldnt have an N64 and there was nothing to do back then! How come Im not good like Kobe?

  • SpartanHl Lacedaemon

    He copy the way of Jordan's talk at the end of the video (make this thing with his tongue,just like Jordan used to do) weird.

  • James Peirson

    The difference between Kobe and Michael, Kobe the type of nigga to eat well, sleep well, work hard. Michael would drink cocktails, smoke cigars, stay until 5:00 am, go to the gym at 7:30 am, then drop 50 points on you at 9:00 PM .

    400 shots a day is not a big deal. European players routinely shoot 1000 a day

  • Parker Rice

  • Cole Fifield

    Fun fact is that after his rookie season he went to Michael Jackson house and asked MJ how he is so great at what he does to in order to be great and Michael then showed him his crazy work ethic and how he learned from the greats and said if you apply that to your game you will become great….. crazy to think that MJ motivated and inspired basketball players and football players just as much as he did other artists of our generation.


    if I had a basketball gym to myself I would train 8 hours a day, prob more. I love basketball so much but I suck so
