 Senior Trainer: Kobe Bryant is not particularly talented because of his mental toughness.


Gary Vitti, a 30-year trainer for the Lakers, talked about Kobe Bryants unique role as a player in an interview.

Kobe is talented, but I can tell you that he is by no means the most talented one. He said, Ive seen so many players that Kobes talent is not even very special. Hes tall, but not so tall; hes fast, but not so fast; hes powerful, but not so strong. Many of the players have more talent than him, but many of them have never won the championship, while Kobe has five. Why is that?

Viti soon revealed the secret:

Kobes toughness has reached the point of eliminating the wordscantandcant. He said, Kobe believes he can do anything by himself. He told me that talent is the most overrated thing in the world, and what really matters is how to use it. Whats really special about Kobe is his hard work and intelligence, and his mental toughness is his talent. Viti spent 20 years with Bryant. He witnessed Bryants response to injuries of all sizes. He broke his finger and broke his Achilles tendon. He also agreed that Bryant would return to play for two free throws. Viti is the most powerful person to talk about Kobes mental toughness, and his summary of Kobes qualities is in place. Bryants talent may be enough to support him to become a superstar, but without the spiritual bonus, Bryant will certainly not achieve what he is today.
