“I got a text from Kobe and he said, ‘If making history was easy, why bother?’ It’s 100 percent right. It ain’t easy. It’s a struggle. I gotta make sure it builds character, and we gotta make sure it builds character. And so, I’m looking forward to the challenge. I’ve never backed down from a challenge, and this team has never backed down from a challenge. We won’t start now.”
Kobe Bryant is getting advice from Steven Spielberg, J.J. Abrams and Jerry Bruckheimer as he redirects his competitive drive from professional basketball to his publishing and production company. One month after retiring from the NBA, the Los Angeles Lakers star has a new daily routine. “I get up early and I train and I work out. Then I go to the office,” Bryant said in an interview. He spends much of his day “kicking around ideas” with his staff of 10 full-time employees at Newport Beach, California-based Kobe Inc. – and calls up those Hollywood heavyweights for guidance.
