Those of us who have had the opportunity to see Kobe Bryant play whether live or on television, we witnessed GREATNESS. And as with any witness to greatness, when it's over, you carry a little piece of it with you.
Just the day before he passed away, Kobe was asked about being passed on the all-time scoring list by LeBron James. Kobe’s response was: "Greatness wasn't worth anything if you couldn't share it."
Yes, Kobe Bryant is gone. But the little bit of greatness he left inside each one of us will never die!
RIP Titan, his daughter Gianna and the other passengers on the plane. Our hearts go to the families.

The Mamba Mentality: How I Play, by Kobe Bryant
In his own words, Bryant reveals his famously detailed approach and the steps he took to prepare mentally and physically to not just succeed at the game, but to excel. Readers will learn how Bryant studied an opponent, how he channeled his passion for the game, how he played through injuries. They’ll also get fascinating granular detail as he breaks down specific plays and match-ups from throughout his career.
Bryant’s detailed accounts are paired with stunning photographs by the Hall of Fame photographer Andrew D. Bernstein. Bernstein, long the Lakers and NBA official photographer, captured Bryant’s very first NBA photo in 1996 and his last in 2016―and hundreds of thousands in between, the record of a unique, twenty-year relationship between one athlete and one photographer.
The combination of Bryant’s narrative and Bernstein’s photos make The Mamba Mentality an unprecedented look behind the curtain at the career of one of the world’s most celebrated and fascinating athletes.
Here’s a quote from the book:
“The mindset isn’t about seeking a result—it’s more about the process of getting to that result. It’s about the journey and the approach. It’s a way of life. I do think that it’s important, in all endeavors, to have that mentality.”
