Lakers News: Kobe Bryant’s Advice To Young Players

Kobe Bryant, without a doubt, is considered one of the best basketball players of all time. After 18 seasons of playing professional basketball, what advice does he have for younger players?

Bryant recently went on a trip to China for the Nike “Rise” Campaign. While in China, Kobe highlighted his skills and excited fans with his presence. He even showcased his will to win by playing one-on-one matches against fans, and he sure wasn’t letting the fans win!

During his visit to Shanghai, in an interview with SINA for NBA.com, Bryant also lent his advice to younger players.

“Defense, defense, defense. Got to play defense. Especially being a shooting guard. There are so many other good shooting guards in the league. It takes a lot of effort for us, we have to be the best conditioned players on the floor because we are asked to score and then you have to go and defend and usually the other team’s best scorer is a shooting guard, so there is no time to rest.”

As one of the top shooting guards of all time, Bryant has not only been great on the offensive side of the court, but also on the defensive end. Over the course of his NBA career, Bryant has been named to the NBA All-Defensive First Team nine times, and named to the NBA All-Defensive Second Team three times.

As Bryant enters into his 19th season, coming off both an Achilles and knee injury, it’ll be interesting to see how his defense matches up.
