Q: Why did you choose to model your basketball game after Kobe Bryant?
A: “Because he’s known as one of the best players and his game is special and different from other players in the NBA.”
Q: What specific parts of his game do you focus on?
A: “How he scores, because if you play you need to know how to score, and what to do when.”
Q: How has that impacted your game?
A: “It’s helped me a lot to improve my game by being able to study what he does and how I can put what he does on the court into what I do myself.”
Q: Has his mentality impacted you in any way?
A: “Yes, because he played like he was the best player on the court every game he played. And that’s the same way I now try to play in every game. I have the mentality of the best.”
Q: How are you able to focus on that “mamba mentality” while you’re on the court?
A: “I just try to stay locked in and play my best and the mindset just comes as a result of me doing what I do on the court.”
