As mentioned in my first post, the mamba mentality is when a work ethic unlike no other builds up inside you to achieve the inevitable. This mentality does not have to only be for basketball but can be implemented in any aspect of life that requires hard work.
For this specific post, I would like to highlight certain players in the NBA who I feel have this spirit. Three players that come to mind are Kyrie Irving, Kawhi Leonard, and Jayson Tatum. What makes these three special among others is that they sought guidance from Kobe that helped their game go to the next level.
Each player has different skill sets that all relate back to Kobe in some way. Kyrie Irving challenged Kobe at a young age in his career which caused him to be humbled by Kobe and want to workout with him. Kawhi Leonard went to workout at the Mamba Academy of Sports with Kobe last summer and is dominating the league at his will. Lastly, Jayson Tatum’s footwork has improved so much just by listening to Kobe, with his game has evolving as well. All three players continue to carry the mamba mentality throughout the NBA today in honor and remembrance of Kobe Bryant.
