Kobe Bryant entered the NBA in 1996 with the goal of becoming the greatest player of all time. That goal kept him in the gym, day and night, for years as he honed his craft.

As Kobe reflects on his 20 seasons and countless memories and lessons learned, he says that his original goal was “a fickle one.” In fact, Kobe’s definition of greatness has completely changed, “The most important thing in life is how your career moves and touches those around you and how it carries forward to the next generation.”

Mission accomplished, Kobe. Mission accomplished.
