    Even when he was a kid, Kobe wanted to be the best. He didn’t need outside motivators; he had an intrinsic desire to improve himself. He also showed no fear. So, if he wanted to incorporate a new move into his game, he wouldn’t hesitate – even if that meant looking inept or feeling embarrassed. The important thing was to try. And when he got it right? Well, that was another skill in his pocket.

    Kobe’s physical training regime was the stuff legends are made of. During the main part of his basketball career, he was lifting weights for 90 minutes, four times per week. And when he said lifting, he meant “heavy, hard, can’t-feel-your-arms” lifting!

    Early in his career, he understood that time management was key – both to balance his basketball life as well as his family life. If he started his first gym session at 5:00 a.m. he’d manage to get in three sessions every day, but still always be there when the kids got up and again at night to put them to bed. He didn’t want to sacrifice any time with his family or his game – so he gave up his sleep instead.

    When it came to prematch preparation, Kobe listened to his body and varied his routine depending on what he felt he needed to do. Sometimes that would mean shooting jumpers; other times it would mean meditation or stretching. And if he felt he needed rest, it was a good indication he should take a power nap.

    It’s important to prepare mentally before a game, too. Kobe’s advice? Again, listen to how you’re feeling. You need to get your head in the right place. So, when Kobe needed to be keyed up for a game, he’d listen to energizing music. If he needed to feel soothed, it had to be the music he used to listen to on the school bus when he was a kid. And when he needed to be calm, he wouldn’t listen to any music at all.

    Kobe also trained his mind regularly by reading, practicing, working, and focusing totally on his day-to-day tasks. By doing so, he found that his mind wandered less and he was more present in each moment.

    He believed that cultivating relationships is essential for preparation. We all need mentors we can look up to. In Kobe’s case, this meant basketball greats like Bill Russell, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and Jerry West.

    Kobe’s curiosity and passion meant he’d ask questions regardless of who he was with. Sometimes he was ignored, but it didn’t bother him – he was eager to learn from those willing to share their knowledge. Kobe relished talking to Magic Johnson, for example. It was always a special opportunity to pick his brain and learn from one of the game’s greats.

    Over the years, Kobe faced many opponents. He studied them all in detail before playing against them. In the next section, we’ll take a look at some of these players and how Kobe adapted his game specifically when playing against them.

    Über den Autor

    Kobe Bryant needs no introduction to basketball fans. He scored a career-high of 81 points in 2006 against the Toronto Raptors, and in 2014 he overtook Michael Jordan’s 32,292 points to become the NBA’s third all-time leading scorer. After winning five NBA championships, becoming an 18-time All-Star, and a two-time NBA Finals MVP, Bryant is frequently touted as one of the greatest basketball players of all time and was posthumously voted into the Basketball Hall of Fame in 2020.

    Ich bin begeistert. Ich liebe Bücher aber durch zwei kleine Kinder komme ich einfach nicht zum Lesen. Und ja, viele Bücher haben viel bla bla und die Quintessenz ist eigentlich ein Bruchteil.

    Genau dafür ist Blinkist total genial! Es wird auf das Wesentliche reduziert, die Blinks sind gut verständlich, gut zusammengefasst und auch hörbar! Das ist super. 80 Euro für ein ganzes Jahr klingt viel, aber dafür unbegrenzt Zugriff auf 3000 Bücher. Und dieses Wissen und die Zeitersparnis ist unbezahlbar.

    Extrem empfehlenswert. Statt sinnlos im Facebook zu scrollen höre ich jetzt täglich zwischen 3-4 "Bücher". Bei manchen wird schnelle klar, dass der Kauf unnötig ist, da schon das wichtigste zusammen gefasst wurde..bei anderen macht es Lust doch das Buch selbständig zu lesen. Wirklich toll

    Einer der besten, bequemsten und sinnvollsten Apps die auf ein Handy gehören. Jeden morgen 15-20 Minuten für die eigene Weiterbildung/Entwicklung oder Wissen.

    Viele tolle Bücher, auf deren Kernaussagen reduziert- präzise und ansprechend zusammengefasst. Endlich habe ich das Gefühl, Zeit für Bücher zu finden, für die ich sonst keine Zeit habe.
