Lakers News: Kobe Wants His Legacy To Extend Beyond Basketball

Kobe BryantThe legacy of Kobe Bryant is one that will last decades, and possibly even centuries. He will undoubtedly go down as one of the greatest Los Angeles Lakers ever to play for the franchise and has cemented his spot as one of the best talents the NBA has ever seen.

But for Bryant, that isn’t enough. Bryant doesn’t want his legacy to end at the basketball court. He wants it to extend to everybody in all walks of life, as he told a Manila Crowd while on his tour with Lenovo:

For me it’s bigger than playing basketball. Basketball is gonna be over one day. And when leave the game I wanna feel like I’ve left an imprint, or left a mark enough, where people, and not only basketball players, but lawyers, doctors or whatever the case may be, can have the same type of mentality in what they do, that I’ve had in what I’ve done.

If everybody in America could be like Kobe, this country would be number one in the world at everything and all other countries would bow at our feet any time they entered the country.

The mentality Bryant was speaking about was that relentlessness to pursue all goals and not let any obstacle stop you from achieving them. Kobe spoke about making the choice to sacrifice fun things for the sake of working towards your goal.

He also spoke about being a leader and how a leader has to make unpopular decisions, but must be brave enough to make those decisions to bring the best out of people and accomplish the goals you set out to achieve.

Kobe has his motivations and goals he wants to achieve, but the challenge is bringing others to that level and if there is anyone capable of doing it, it is Kobe Bryant.

Hopefully these statements don’t lead to a lawyer doing the signature Kobe Jaw after a successful prosecution.

    No surprise he’s had a few bumps but manages himself (own brand) successfully while having the capacity to reach a global audience. Entrepreneur like many seem to be going while investing outside of their own occupation/market. Future entrepreneur like Magic.

      Good point Jim213,

      And the point Kobe is making is huge!

      If more young people would see the potential to create their own destinies the word would shift from one of massive competition by the masses,controlled by the few…. to a world with more freedom,less poverty,less hate,and more creative independence.
