Legendary Laker Kobe Bryant and Mamba Academy C.E.O Chad Faulkner talk with Jeff G of The Cruz Show on the importance of the Sports Academy, which focuses on developing youth as individuals and athletes. Bryant also chops it up about the incredible season James Harden is currently having as well as his position on the Anthony Davis fine, LeBron James’ Netflix project and more.
Opening the Mamba Sports Academy facility, Bryant mentions that the institution is only set up for success and molding its students to prepare for the best and of course be the best.
The idea is to put them in an environment where they are protected and they’re well cared for. It’s very hard at a youth level, especially for parents to put them in an environment where they can trust their children are developing in a right way. Trust that they have the right coaches, trust that they have the right care. In here, you know that things are very well vetted. We’re not going to build anything or put kids in situations where they could potentially learn the wrong stuff.
While Kobe has not been a playing Laker for nearly three years, that doesn’t mean he doesn’t know the game still.. Bryant shares his thoughts on the successful season James Harden has been having this year and Kobe also shares his thoughts on Anthony Davis being fined for his trade requests.
