Kobe Bryant’s New Nike Commercial Stresses Mental Toughness – VIDEO
This is a new Nike commercial featuring Los Angeles Lakers superstar Kobe Bryant. Bryant was in China during the summer as part of a tour for Nike Basketball.
Bryant, who is recovering from surgery on a torn Achilles tendon, couldn't participate in any drills, but he was able to give some pointers.
The biggest things you can take away from this commercial is that while practicing is important, it's more important to practice the right way, and that's by being mentally sharp.
It's one thing to have good work ethic for a day, a week, or a year. But to have that great work ethic, even after 17 tremendous years in the NBA, like Kobe, is truly amazing, which probably explains a little bit of his longevity.
