Throughout his career, Kobe Bryant’s dedication has been the essence of his game. So it shouldn’t surprise you that following tonight’s crushing loss to the Miami Heat, Kobe grabbed 3 ball boys and began a shooting spree in American Airlines Arena. Seemingly, the goal on this practice is to hit 25 shots from different areas of the court – midrange, free throw and 3-point.
CBS Sports: More than an hour after the Lakers lost a grueling game to the Heat 94-88 in which Kobe missed his last three shots and had two turnovers in the final three minutes, he took back to the court to get some work in.
It’s the reason he is who he is. Obsessive about his game, to the point of near compulsion. The Lakers aren’t flying out to Dallas until Friday morning, so it presented Bryant a rare opportunity to go back to work. And as we know how Kobe is, he’s not going to miss the chance.
When the dust settles on Kobe Bryant’s career and his dedication to winning is mentioned, people can look back and point to instances like this. You can catch a video of Kobe’s postgame Miami practice, courtesy of Arash Markazi.
