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 competitive. 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.”
