Kobe Bryant was as good defensively and a notorious psycho when it comes to preparing for opponents. The retired “Mamba” showcased his basketball psychosis by producing a series of videos he wrote, directed, and narrated. This one was called Guarding the Greats and episode 1 will feature “Guarding LeBron”.
The slickly produced video features Kobe sharing his secrets for preparing to defend a great player, including gems like how one has to focus on shutting the player down just to slow them down, intermixed with retro video game-like footage and Looney Tunes clips (seriously).
The Lakers are currently the second-worst defensive team in the league behind the Portland Trail Blazers so would Luke Walton be interested in hiring Kobe as a defensive coordinator? I doubt it, but if were him, a call would certainly be placed to Bryant’s direction.
