After thirteen years in the National Basketball Association, one would instigate that he is slowing down and becoming washed up. I would effortlessly argue that he is in his prime and only getting better. If winning an Olympic Gold Medal doesn’t say enough about this extraordinary competitor, then maybe the three NBA Championship Title rings might be the pieces of evidence that turns the doubters into believers. The media may portray him as a “Bad Guy”, but every makes mistakes in life and the best thing to do about them is not regret them but learn from them. Despite the fact that he was a tad bit dishonest in his relationship with his wife, he made a statement by continuing to play the best basketball he could, night in and night out. That was just a stepping-stone in his life and he is still on the life long journey of becoming the G.O.A.T. He is Kobe Bryant.
