These young guys are playing checkers. I'm out there playing chess.
I dont want to be the next Michael Jordan, I only want to be Kobe Bryant.
Everyting negative - pressure, challenges - is all an opportunity for me to rise.
My parents are my backbone. Still are. They're the only group that will support you if you score zero or you score 40.
There's been a lot of talk of me being a one-man show but that's simply not the case. We win games when I score 40 points and we've won when I score 10.
I'll do whatever it takes to win games, whether it's sitting on a bench waving a towel, handing a cup of water to a teammate, or hitting the game-winning shot.
