In level one of the #KobeSystem, Kobe teaches Aziz Ansari a thing or two about dealing with early success.
So who is Aziz Ansari, what success has he had and what kind of advice can Kobe give him.
10 years after Kobe entered the league, Aziz Ansari entered the the TV comedy world by creating the critically acclaimed MTV sketch comedy show Human Giant. The success of that show led to roles in feature films including Funny People, I Love You Man, Observe and Report, Get Him To the Greek and on TV with the hit show Parks and Recreation. Success came again and again in the form of stand up specials, hosting gigs and even a memorable cameo in the Kanye and Jay-Z video “Otis“

So here Aziz is, sitting just seats away from the Otis creator Kanye West hoping to learn how he can be more like Kobe. If you look closely at Aziz’s success you will see some similarities in what he has done and Kobe. Both got started as important and memorable pieces to a bigger co-star that he would partner with multiple times. For Aziz it was Seth Rogan and Kobe it was Shaq. Both paid their dues but now have the ability to carry a show. Aziz hosted the MTV Movie Awards and Kobe has carried the Lakers to multiple championships on his way to Final MVP trophies.
Cant’ wait to see what’s next for Aziz after the #KobeSystem
