Kobe is a different animal. 


The new generation of players have too many distractions.  Kobe cares about one thing, winning.

There's this legitimate sleep technique where u sleep 30 minutes 4-5 times day spaced out 5-6 hours apart, the objective is to deprive the body of REM sleep for the first week (which, as u guys can imagine, [expletive]in sucks), so that when u do actually sleep, u go right into REM sleep (which is the most mentally restorative sleep). The theory behind it is that a regular 7-8 hour night of sleep (with its regular cycles) can only get u around 1.5 of REM sleep, whereas this technique gets u 2 to 2.5 hours of REM sleep

I wouldn't be surprised if Kobe did something insane like this to compensate for his schedule.

Interesting. If there's anyone who can achieve this it's the Mamba ;)

Kobes work ethic is possibly the best ever. I just love how he trains and pratices to an elite level even at 34. While many wouldn't be as motivated on maintaining and improving their game in their twilight years, Kobe is the opposite. He knows to stay at the top of the hill
he must continue to push himself even more on honing and improving his skills to compete with the today's young stars. This dedication and determination are what makes Kobe great. His success in his career only goes to prove that hard work pays off. One thing that always stands out to me is the classic Iverson interview.
You know the one. "Pratice, c'mon man, we taking bout practice". Kobe and AIs mindsets are polar opposites and its no wonder these guys careers have panned out the way they have, especially towards the end. One is still arguably the best in the game, while one is not even in the NBA. Kobe truly is a role model to anybody who wants to be a winner in life. No matter how much talent you have you still have to put in work to achieve your goals!!!

People have too many distractions. Kobe isn't a person thought so this is normal for him

That's some amazing work ethic... Only Kobe. Really makes you feel even worse for him, especially this season. He works this hard always, only for his teammates to show up sporadically, give half-hearted efforts, etc., ending up with the team losing so many games. Other players would just throw in the towel, or move on to another team and form a super trio in South Beach to take the easy way out.


Especially frustrating considering how talented our team is right now, with Dwight, Pau, etc. I don't know the work ethic of the rest of the team, but if it was even close to half of Kobe's, they'd be unbeatable imo.
