Talking about some of the most influential players in the history of the NBA, one cannot leave out Kobe Bryant off the list. During his 20 years in the NBA, the Mamba left an unforgettable impression on numerous people.
Kobe had a certain swagger to his game ever since stepping foot on an NBA court. When Kobe came to the league, Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls were still dominating the league. However, in just a few years, it was quite obvious that Kobe will be the next big thing in the NBA.
Furthermore, he was the closest player to Jordan that the league had ever seen. The Mamba stripped Jordan’s game of its bare essentials and incorporated it into his playing style in the league.
The cherry on the top was the Jordan-like winning mentality that Kobe possessed. That mentality helped him win a plethora of accolades, including five NBA Championships, during his time in the league.
Coach K praises Los Angeles Lakers legend Kobe Bryant
Speaking of Kobe’s insane winning mentality, renowned NCAA coach Mike Krzyzewski recently revealed what his first impressions of Bryant were. Coach K stated:
“And when he walked into a gym, he walked like [Michael] Jordan, at a high school level. … He looked that good, he believed he was that good, and he was that good.”

This is one of the biggest signs of spotting a once-in-a-lifetime talent. They not only possess an unbelievable skill-set, but they have a mentality that no one is better than them.
Although it might sound a bit arrogant, having the talent to back that up proves otherwise. Kobe Bryant was a generational talent, and we might never see someone like him ever again.
