Kobe Bryant Greatness Personified
I wanted to make a comprehensive 10 minute video filled with every aspect of Kobe's game. His flawless skill set, his dynamic style of play, and to fully illustrate what makes him so great. I have had the privilege of watching him play for a long time and I wished to condense his prime into a 10 minute video. There is a reason I consider this man the greatest player that has ever played this game.
The most remarkable thing about the greatness of Kobe Bryant is that he wasn't as blessed as other have been athletically , yet he MAXIMIZED his abilities through the best work ethic in NBA history.
Was he blessed to have Durant's 6''9 height, 7''7 wingspan?
Was he blessed to Have Lebron's 6''8 , 260 lb frame+FT line /head over rim explosion?
Was he blessed to have Tmac's unbelievable length?
Was he blessed enough to have Jordan's huge hands+incredible leaping ability?
Was he blessed enough to have Wade's or Rose's speed?
The answer is no. He isn't the fastest, most athletically or genetically gifted player ever. He was a decent leaper with an unpolished game; a weak 17-year old bench player that loved the game of basketball. No one ever thought this kid would recover from his ultimate low "air ball moment" in Utah, yet he has proven everyone wrong by blossoming into the Greatest skill/talent/fundamental player the league has EVER seen. That's the charm of Kobe Bryant. He shows that through perseverance and enduring hard work, despite any obstacle, you too can be the best at whatever you want to be. For limits are simply an illusion.
