Who was little Kobe ?
He was born in Philadelphia, the youngest of three children and only son of former NBA player Joe Bryant and Pamela Cox Bryant. When Bryant was six, his father retired from the NBA and moved his family to Rieti in Italy to continue playing professional basketball at a lower level. He adapted to the new lifestyle quickly and learned to speak Italian. Little Kobe started playing basketball when he was 3 years old and the Lakers were his favorite team when he was growing up. What a coincidence , right ? He became later the shooting guard of the NBA‘s Lakers Team and that is what I call DEDICATION and VISUALIZATION . What made him focus so unapologetically? I will talk about it later ***Sips on tea*** Bryant's grandfather would mail him videos of NBA games for him to study. At an early age, Bryant also learned to play soccer and his favorite team was A.C. Milan.
