The spirit of desire to be number one always urges Bryant himself to go ahead and defeat all, his biggest opponent is himself. At his peak, Bryant was a good scorer, but many times was criticized for his lack of team play. D’Angelo Russell had a season with Bryant, he was inhibited because he could not play when Bryant was on the field.
Even when Bryant retired, he was still a topic that was frequently explored in the newspaper, even the New York Times said it was never old when it comes to Bryant. Great Bryant or a sinner, each individual has his perspective, but no one denies he is a true legend.
The day Bryant broke up with the wooden floor, he hit the 60-point Utah Jazz basket, marking the most impressive goodbye in history. Bryant is also the first player in the NBA to hang two numbers 8 and 24 at the Staples Center. If the accident didn’t happen, Bryant would be called out and walked up in the NBA’s Hall Of Fame temple.
Bryant is hailed as a powerful athlete in the sports industry
According to LeBron James, a talk with Bryant is once inspired. Bryant believes that the biggest rival in sports is himself. He had never stepped onto the stage in the thought of having to surpass someone. Because just surpassing yourself and creating new achievements, that is the victory of sport.
Michael Jordan believes only Bryant is like him in his attitude of hard training and seeing success as the limitless goal. Later, many new actors in the NBA looked to success from the example of Bryant, from Kawhi Leonard or Giannis Antetokounmpo. The end of Bryant surprised everyone when only a few days ago, he went directly to the Staples Center to cheer the old Lakers team to play.
Ronaldo, Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic, and many famous athletes call Bryant inspiration. However, the most regretful thing in Bryant’s life was that he could not inspire his son, ready to follow in the footsteps of the “Black Mamba” battle in the NBA tournament.
Bryant has four daughters including Gianna, Natalia, Biankav, and Capri. Gianna, Bryant’s second daughter, has a dream of becoming a professional basketball player at the WNBA tournament.
However, the worst thing is that Gianna has passed away forever with Bryant.
