I'm reading it currently. Took it from the library. The book so far is very well detailed and goes in other topic to back up the original topic.

Couple versions of this show.

The one with Kobe narrating is the better one and includes his last game.

(other version made before game was played)

 

2 interesting takeaways for me.

- His 62 v dallas in 3 was in part Kobe claims because Del Harris was Dallas coach (and Kobe's rookie coach).

Kobe said it was payback for not playing him more minutes his rookie season.

 

- Another that he didn't mention but the guy (or one of) trying to guard him on his 81 night was Jalen Rose on toronto.

Who also happened to be the guy who stuck his foot underneath kobe in game 2 of finals vs Pacers a few years earlier which Kobe landed on and sprained his ankle and missed a game. (just a hunch they were connected)

Praying for  1. Youngsters Ballin (Didn't really happen on a consistent basis at all) 2. Miracle Trade (Also didn't happen. And we traded our best player for chump change) 3. Kick Ass Rooks (Zubac exceeded, Ingram tried but disappointed overall)

READY FOR SEASON TO BE OVER!!!

Jalen Rose's Dumb ass told Stephen A Smith with a straight face that Kwame Brown wasn't a Scrub. when I say that clip I never listened to his podcast again

So, Joe Bryant woulda/coulda/shoulda gone to prison for possession of cocaine/resisting arrest/driving without a license.

 

That's really something. 

 

I love how Roland does the backstory of the subject's mother and father, to explain where their character traits come from.   Kobe has the flashiness and basketball skills of his father, and maternal uncle, Chubby, but got his discipline/focus/work-ethic from his mother.

And also how Nike backstory in the 80s came alive and how and where they went. Very interesting.

Watched some prime Kobe game highlights for the first time since he retired, and I wish I didnt.

 

Man this guy is unreal. I'd trade the whole team and be the sixers for the next decade just to relive one season of prime Kobe
