Kobe’s beautiful mind

/ 05:20 AM February 01, 2020

When Kobe Bryant perished in a helicopter crash, he left behind accumulated earnings estimated at $600 Million, Forbes Magazine reported.

There are investments in business, properties and other mundane things.


At the bottom of the list is Granity Studios which, by its nature, is not a high-earning outfit.But it’s here where Bryant’s brilliant mind has been richly invested. One of the projects Bryant was working on in postretirement, it is dedicated to inspire and motivate.

Granity produced “Dear Basketball,” a short animated film that won for Bryant an Oscar award in 2018. The winning film has Bryant himself narrating as he talked about devotion to basketball and the reasons why he knew it was time to stay away from the court. There’s an invitation to honor Bryant by viewing the award-winning film via DearBasketball.com.



Bryant, who said he loved to tell stories, was reportedly planning to take his act to Broadway, with a dream production of “Dear Basketball” for the world stage.

The legendary NBA icon, now being hailed as the greatest player of all time, never relented on lending brilliant ways and teachings on improving the game and humanity, as a whole.

There have suddenly emerged packages, mainly on YouTube, of Bryant’s interviews and personal projections to help out and make this a better and successful world to live in.


Here are golden tips courtesy of Bryant’s beautiful mind:

“Have a champion’s mentality and outwork everybody.


“Be the best of what you can be.

“Learn from your mistakes, don’t quit.

“Protect your dreams, make them stay pure.

“Follow your passion, have a strong purpose, make it crystal clear.

“Focus on one thing, be the best what you can be.

“Be committed and help people be the best of what they can be.

“Never stop in the middle, rest comes only in the end”

In that brilliant poem “Dear Basketball,” Byant said: “You asked for my hustle, I gave you my heart.”

Ever eager to help and motivate, tireless Kobe had never intended to pause and quit.

Rest in peace now, Amazing Master.
