Like any solid investment or winner, his personal life and career has not always moved up in a straight line. Kobe has experienced his share of pullbacks and corrections, but what makes him truly great are his comebacks against adversity in life and in the game of basketball. What makes it possible for him to consistently do this is his commitment to excellence, discipline and hard work (all qualities that Hillbent strives to embrace as well).
Let’s just say thank you and allow Kobe to take the final shot with his farewell poem he has shared with fans after announcing his retirement…
“And we both know, no matter what I do next
I’ll always be that kid
With the rolled up socks
Garbage can in the corner
:05 seconds on the clock
Ball in my hands.
5 … 4 … 3 … 2 … 1″
