Kobe Bryant is widely considered one of the hardest working athletes in sports, and he knows it.Today he spoke with ESPN’s Dave McMenamin and said young players today generally have good work ethics because they grew up watching him. Here’s the quote (via BDL):

“Just by observation of some of the younger players that I face now, they wind up having a similar mentality that I had. Because growing up, they were obviously watching me when I was 21, 22 years old and just kind of by any means necessary get things done, not afraid of the big moment and extremely competitive. They all have these work ethics now and most of them get up at five in the morning to train like I do. It’s pretty cool.”

Another excellent Kobe quote to add to the list.
