The world is still reeling at the tragic death of NBA great, Kobe Bryant and his 13-year old daughter Gianna.
In what is now his last interview, Bryant reflected on his illustrious career and his life after the NBA and the big plans he had…
In an interview with USA Today published on January 23, the former Los Angeles Lakers player expressed happiness at his careers outside of basketball. One job in particular that he especially admired was the children’s books he worked on with The Wizenard Series.
“You got to do what you love to do. I love telling stories,” he shared with the publication. “I love inspiring kids or providing them with tools that are going to help them.”
Kobe even launched his own publishing company as a platform to share his stories. “I have an idea for an entire universe that centers around sports, fantasy and magic,” he told USA Today. “It’s as if the Olympics and Harry Potter had a baby.”
According to the profile, Kobe reported to his office regularly at 8 a.m. He would leave work around 2 p.m. to pick up his daughters from school. He would return to work around 3:30 p.m. for more work.
“Coaching youth sports is so important to take very seriously because you’re helping the emotional (development) of young kids,” he shared. “So it’s understanding not to be overcritical and understanding that (there) are going to be mistakes.”
Kobe Bryant will be missed by the WORLD!
