Some think Kobe is done, others think that Kobe can come back better than ever but before you worry about his future, he gives you a little look at his past and how he got to where he is now. . Edit 3: Seems to have been taken down off of Vimeo. Then again, not every athlete is Kobe Bryant. This segment aired on December 12, 2015.
I hope everybody enjoys this and it's really worth the watch. This reminded me of why I had a room full of Kobe posters in middle school. Says the ideas that Phil taught him are present in the whole film, even if he doesn't outright state it. Guess I could on Twitter. Also, makes me wonder what kind of person could give this film anything less than a 7! Yeah, he wasn't even calling me a muse when he was in high school, but we had a good relationship. On the field, there is a sports nickname — Black Mamba! What I mean by that is, there are inherent sacrifices that come along with that. The film tells the story of Kobe Bryant — professional basketball player who plays on shooting guard position in the basketball team the Los Angeles Lakers.
He was getting pulled out to play with this team or that team, and he'd be gone for days, and he'd come back with the assignments in hand. Not every athlete would use a poem to announce a career-changing decision. Shaq has a much more physical game, although he did have finesse. The 81 pt game and 62 pts game in 3 quarters were the great scoring performances I've seen in modern nba history. Or there's tons of fan-made stuff out there about most people. Kobe was shown a rough cut of the film about 7 months ago, which featured dozens of interviews by other people, and he thought it would be better if they went the 1 man voice route like the Tyson documentary that Melo produced a few years ago.
At this critical juncture in his career, viewers will watch as Bryant attempts to cement his legacy, opening a window into the mind of an elite athlete still motivated to be the best, but also contemplating life after sports. My first memory of Kobe was watching this skinny dude who used to suck during this key moments in a playoff game against the jazz. Kobe takes everyone on a journey throughout his early years living in a foreign land, his life as a young star athlete all the way until he becomes the man he is today. Edit: Special thanks to for letting me use his Vimeo+ account. With unbridled access to his daily experiences, the film will reveal what makes Bryant tick and the life-long inspirations that have motivated him. I'm taking this down court and I'm getting it done. My entire life so far, I've been a fan of the lakers, and Kobe has been a part of it.
Through Walter Payton, Tug McGraw, Tom Seaver, Tim Lincecum, Hunter Pence, Madison Bumgarner, Peyton Manning, Cam Newton!! He was remarkably disciplined in high school. Get out of my way. You were Kobe Bryant's 10th grade English teacher and then you had him again in 12th grade, right? He'd always talk about being a pro ballplayer. I respected him a lot for that. Other than looking at stat pages and seeing the odd highlight reel. That special, trademark smug look Kobe would project just demonstrated, year after year, how dedicated and impassioned he was about his game. And definitely not a sports fan or any kind.
It took me completely by surprise. The 2008 loss against the Celtics sucked, and then back to back titles was amazing. Is that something you could do for me? He was getting pulled out to play with this team or that team, and he'd be gone for days, and he'd come back with the assignments in hand. I'd like to get published. He also goes in depth concerning some personal issues as well as talking about his recent string of horrible career-threatening injuries.
I absolutely dont care, not even a bit. Also really under looked aspect of his career was that pinky toe injury in 2001. Himself archive footage Just seeing this for the first time. Mastriano, we should explain why your opinion counts. I know you have this passion, but why don't you develop some sort of backup interest just in case? So true that we can all be masters at something if we put our minds to it, but the reason so many of us don't, is that we aren't prepared to make those sacrifices or put in the time. In my opinion, only a hater or idiot could do so. How could anyone not admire that kind of surreal dedication! His competitiveness and drive is so inspiring.
Personally, I thought those words are very powerful. Even Pat Riley has retired 23 in Miami out of respect for Jordan. Such a well done doc. And thank you Kobe for that last game! We did a lot of writing in 10th grade. You can talk about their greatness.
