Fewer players have made a greater impact on the NBA than Kobe Bryant.
His intensity, skill level, and his “Mamba Mentality” have been the biggest points of emphasis taken from his career.
In a recent conversation with NBA reporter Scoop B Robinson, Bryant’s former teammate, A.C. Green gave insight into his practice intensity.
“The funny thing about Kobe is that he was always in game mode,” Green said.
Kobe Bryant in practice was a BEAST & the late great was also serious about marrying his sweetheart Vanessa Bryant.says AC Green on Scoop B Selects.

Bryant was known to never decline any challenges, either from teammates or opposing teams.
He seemed to apply this intensity to all aspects of his life, including the extreme faith that he found later in life.
Green also recalled Bryant’s intentions with his wife, saying that was the aspect of life they talked about the most, declaring, “They obviously had a very special relationship.”
Bryant spent his entire career with the Los Angeles Lakers.
Family was incredibly important to him, as Green indicated.
He believed that the LA area was where he was supposed to be and that it was meant to be a home for him and his family.
Bryant may be no longer with us, but the legacy that he left behind is something that won’t soon be forgotten.
He has made an impact on so many of the NBA’s current players, as several have tried to model their style of play after him.
Even though some may try, it seems unlikely that the league will ever see a player like Bryant again.NEXT: Pat Riley Recalls Dwyane Wade And Heat Complex Relationship In 2016
