Kobe Bryant is a sure first-ballot Hall of Famer as one the most decorated players in NBA history with 5 NBA Championships, 18 All-Star appearances, 11 NBA First-Team Honors and so much more.
Back in 2015, Bryant talked about not following a lot of college basketball but admitted that he did keep track of Kentucky and that he was “a big Cal guy”.
Post-retirement, Kobe has won an academy award and now opened the Mamba Sports Academy, to teach athletes of all levels to embrace the “Mamba Mentality” and be the “best versions of themselves”.
The Mamba Sports Academy has been headlined by superstars like Kawhi Leonard but several former Cats have been training with Kobe, and that list features
- Anthony Davis
- De’Aaron Fox
- Julius Randle
- Jamal Murray
- Rajon Rondo
- Devin Booker
It is definitely a good thing to be learning from one of the greatest of all time, and maybe those Cats can take some more hardware with their newfound “Mamba Mentality”.
