Kobe is quick to point out that he’s unfiltered in interviews and quicker to showcase the trait with direct comments and answers like this gem from media day.
When asked about Dwight Howard being wishy washy and eventually leaving LA, Kobe said, “Honestly man, I really don’t give a shit. It is what it is.”
It seems people really want to beat this dead horse and get something juicy from Kobe about Dwight but the juiciest story the reporters can run with is Bryant’s no shit giving feelings for Dwight and his decisions.
In more positive news, Kobe is back from his Health and Fitness weekend in Dubai, where he put on a clinic to raise awareness for Diabetes and gave some nice advice to the attendees.
“An important thing for me and throughout my career is the idea of constantly challenging yourself. We all go through adversities and we all have obstacles and I think it’s important to try to inspire the youth and inspire each other. I think the most important thing is this aspect and this idea of being inspired. The hardest part of getting older is not training, because you are so used to training for so many years, the hardest part is being able to change the diet. You get accustomed to eating bad food your entire life and now you have to have the determination and a struggle with yourself to put that stuff to the side and actually start eating healthy for the first time. This changed about three years ago when I started becoming insanely competitive with what I am eating. Now I eat for performance, eat for recovery. It’s eating with a purpose. Whether it’s basketball or football it doesn’t matter – as long as you’re healthy. Get out with your friends. Don’t be lazy. Play, have fun, compete, be active.”
