20+ Quotes of Kobe Bryant

  1. "I have self-doubt. I have insecurity. I have fear of failure. I have nights when I show up at the arena and I'm like, 'My back hurts, my feet hurt, my knees hurt. I don't have it. I just want to chill.' We all have self-doubt. You don't deny it, but you also don't capitulate to it. You embrace it."
  2. "The topic of leadership is a touchy one. A lot of leaders fail because they don't have the bravery to touch that nerve or strike that chord. Throughout my years, I haven't had that fear."
  3. "I don't want to be the next Michael Jordan, I only want to be Kobe Bryant."

  4. "Everything negative - pressure, challenges - is all an opportunity for me to rise."
  5. "I'll do whatever it takes to win games, whether it's sitting on a bench waving a towel, handing a cup of water to a teammate, or hitting the game-winning shot."
  6. These young guys are playing checkers. I'm out there playing chess.

  7. "My parents are my backbone. Still are. They're the only group that will support you if you score zero or you score 40."
  8.  "I've played with IVs before, during and after games. I've played with a broken hand, a sprained ankle, a torn shoulder, a fractured tooth, a severed lip, and a knee the size of a softball. I don't miss 15 games because of a toe injury that everybody knows wasn't that serious in the first place."
  9. Everyone looks at your watch and it represents who you are, your values and your personal style.
  10. The Black Mamba collection of watches is me: It is my alter ego, so to speak. As I mentioned before, it is sharp, cutting edge and sleek which are
    characteristics I try to apply when I'm out there on the basketball court.

  11. I am chasing perfection.

  12. We all know what flopping is when we see it. The stuff that you see is where guys aren't really getting hit at all and are just flailing around like a fish out of water.

  13.  I can't relate to lazy people. We don't speak the same language. I don't understand you. I don't want to understand you.
  14.  I love going one-on-one with someone. That's what I do. I've never lost. It's a whole different game, just to have them right in front of you and be able to do whatever you want.

  15.  The important thing is that your teammates have to know you're pulling for them and you really want them to be successful.
  16. If you're afraid to fail, then you're probably going to fail.
  17. Magic has five championships. I have five championships. I'm pretty sure we both know what we're doing.
  18. Sports are such a great teacher. I think of everything they've taught me: camaraderie, humility, how to resolve differences.

  19. The most important thing is to try and inspire people so that they can be great in whatever they want to do.

  21. People just don't understand how obsessed I am with winning.
  22.  Winning takes precedence over all. There's no gray area. No almost.
  23. I'm extremely willful to win, and I respond to challenges. Scoring titles and stuff like that... it sounds, well, I don't care how it sounds - to me, scoring comes easy. It's not a challenge to me to win the scoring title, because I know I can.
