Kobe in my ear
June 10, 2008
“I just tell him to relax,” Kobe Bryant said. “Sometimes he’s his own worst enemy. I tell him, ‘You’ve got to get out of the way of yourself. Just go out there and let your game come. You got a shot, shoot it. Just relax.’
God knows why I was reading sports, but when Kobe was speaking to Lamar Odom he was speaking to me. I wish I had a little Kobe in my ear, a bluetooth Kobe I could stick in there, let him whisper, “shoot, dummy. Don’t think.” One question, though. How long do you have to wait until your game comes? Hard not to think about that.
