“If you want to be great in a particular area, you have to obsess over it.”

Through 20 years of photos by the LA Laker's photographer Andrew Bernstein, we see Kobe's relentless mindset to be the best in the NBA. He shares his herculean workouts, his constant curiosity, and his analysis of his opponents' strengths and weaknesses.

Released in 2018, this first person account is more valuable in the wake of Kobe's untimely death. We gain insight into what it takes to become a champion.

“A lot of people say they want to be great, but they’re not willing to make the sacrifices necessary to achieve greatness.”

Truly inspiring!
