David Beckham got a nice ovation just now. Kobe, Gasol, Nash & Howard were there to watch him & the LA Galaxy win another ti*le yesterday. Kobe brought the family along with him as well.
Kobe Bryant congratulates himself for influencing the work ethic of a generation
“Just by observation of some of the younger players that I face now, they wind up having a similar mentality that I had,” Bryant said when asked how he has changed the sport during his time as a pro. “Because growing up, they were obviously watching me when I was 21, 22 years old and just kind of by any means necessary get things done, not afraid of the big moment and extremely competi*ive. They all have these work ethics now and most of them get up at five in the morning to train like I do. It’s pretty cool.”
