Chris Sacca said that a few years back, he reluctantly took a meeting with Bryant because the basketball star wanted to discuss some business ventures and the startup world. Sacca told Simmons that he was skeptical about Bryant not only because he wasn’t a basketball fan, but because he had witnessed many professional athletes treat business like tourism, barely dipping their toes into the world and learning how it works. Not surprisingly, Bryant was slightly different. From Sacca: So I said, “Look, if you’re serious about this, then prove it to me.” I said, “I’m going to send you a bunch of stuff that you should read, a bunch of TED Talks and other videos you should watch, and if you do your homework then I’ll talk to you about investing.” It was funny because I didn’t think he was going to do it. I thought it was kind of a nice way to let him off easy.
Bryant did not balk at the homework assignment: So, sure enough, for the next few months my phone never stops buzzing in the middle of the night. It’s Kobe, reading this article, checking out this tweet, following this guy, diving into this Ted Talk, diving into the Y Combinator Demo Day stuff. And I’m getting these texts, literally two or three in the morning, and my wife is like, “Are you having an affair with Kobe Bryant? What is happening here?”

In a moment that became even more uncomfortable than having to guard him, Bryant told an esthetician that he sweats profusely. It happens when he plays. It happens when he stands up and jumps. It happens so much that his teammates constantly made fun of him. Through nearly six minutes of awkwardness, Bryant then revealed another secret of his. This all served as a prank for the “Ellen DeGeneres Show.” All of which revealed that Bryant does not have a sweating problem. He is just really really good in acting.

His slate of celebrity clients is growing again, too. Hamilton recently made a jacket for Slash of the newly reunited Guns N’ Roses. When he wanted to dress up as Martin Lawrence last Halloween, Kevin Hart had Hamilton recreate the jacket the ’90s sitcom star wore in the opening credits of his eponymous show. Then there’s Drake, who this winter asked Hamilton for a one-of-a-kind piece that paid tribute to Kobe Bryant. While sitting courtside the All-Star game in his hometown of Toronto, the hip-hop star showed off the $7,000 “Farewell Mamba” jacket.
