Season 2 is finally here! Knuckleheads with Quentin Richardson and Darius Miles returns in a huge way, with Kobe Bryant, aka “the Mamba,” joining the fellas. The three get right down to business, with Kobe talking about being the first guard to jump to the NBA straight out of high school, as well as about draft night -- specifically how the Hornets pissed him off before trading him to the Lakers. He then describes what it was like to be a teenager in a “grown man’s” league and how, in the long run, that was crucial to his success. The guys then ask him about his first All-Star Game, when he went up against MJ, and when Western Conference coach George Karl benched him for the entire fourth quarter. Kobe would go on to use Karl’s snub for years as a motivator whenever L.A. faced the Nuggets in the playoffs. “The Black Bruce Wayne” also explains how he developed his arsenal of basketball weapons, and how he matured into “the baddest man on the planet.” Kobe then discusses why he switched from wearing number 8 to number 24 - and why it was so important to him. And remember the time Kobe had 61 at the Garden? Well, it didn’t just happen. He says there was a reason he needed to go off like that, and divulges how that performance was crucial to the Lakers’ success the rest of that season. He then talks about teaching his daughter the game, and how cool it has been for him to coach her team. Finally, Kobe touches on battling through injuries and gives advice to anyone going through physical rehab. You won’t hear a more unfiltered version of Kobe anywhere! Season 2. Live now!

  • I think he got aggressive when he got picked on in Italy. His daughter got it cuz she seen it in him, and seen that aggression could fuel productivity if filtered properly. My aggression came from being overlooked when I was young, people talking slick, then I became obsessed with preparation and practice and it translated in games eventually. And that further fueled the aggression

  • Kobe is the best teacher. He can talk about anything and will be motivational to the listeners,. Kobe. is such a great speaker and he explains everything to you so you understand what he is talking about. He is awesome, with all that happening now, boy Kobe is missed. I just love the way he speaks and as a speaker. We all miss him and it hard, it getting hard to not want to hear his voice or see his face. He brings me comfort, in what he says and how he says it. Kobe will always be amazing on the court and off the court. We will always miss him and Gianna. RIP Kobe and Gigi. Thanks, The Players' Tribune for sharing with us, thank you. Thank you Kobe, may you always be remembered, you and Gianna.

  • Through seeking advice from older vets, talent, and pathological hard work, Kobe made himself the most skilled player of all-time. Can you imagine if he had gone to Duke for 2 years then entered as a starter on the Clippers in 1998 (they drafted #1). After 3 years he could have joined the Shaq Lakers as a free agent. Duke-Kobe would have been #2-3 All-time, instead of #7.

I'm a LA native that's a hardcore LA sports fan (except the scRAMS,,, FOREVER FAITHFUL NINERS),,, but ef LeBron.. he's not a true Laker,,, got ride of our young core (to the Pelicans,,, my new #2 team)/ and just now realizing what the West is after his whole career playing in the weak east... #LebronHaterForLife

  • It's still so crazy to talk about Kobe in a past tense. Like it's been a little past 5 months now and it's hard to process the fact that he's gone. Never did I think I would out live my childhood sports hero. Like a superhero Kobe to me seemed immortal like dude was going to live forever. No lie true story, January 26th was my first time I ever visited staples center. I was there for the 2020 LA Fit Expo that was taking place literally right next door to Staples. Wish I could post here my pictures from IG but it made me sick to my stomach, like damn my first time I ever come here for the weekend and my sports hero dies. WTF man.
