Sports legend Kobe Bryant’s guiding principles

Kobe Bryant’s incredible, record-shattering basketball career reads like a road map for the pursuit of greatness. Though he came onto the NBA scene brimming with talent, it was his relentless work ethic, his tireless pursuit of knowledge, his unflappable confidence, and his turbo-charged ambition--his "Mamba mentality"--that drove him to become an icon with a lasting legacy.

-Powerful quotes from The Black Mamba himself
-A biographical look at Kobe’s unique upbringing, his early start, and his long, celebrated career with the Los Angeles Lakers
-Original art that captures Kobe’s unique spirit on and off the court
-Timeless truths and uplifting life lessons to inspire your own path to excellence
