Kobe Bryant’s Facebook Post on Him Being a Great Leader & Good Teammate

Maybe Smush Paker’s comments about Bean got to him a bit?

Here is what he had to say via his Facebook account.

Leadership is responsibility.

There comes a point when one must make a decision. Are YOU willing to do what it takes to push the right buttons to elevate those around you? If the answer is YES, are you willing to push the right buttons even if it means being perceived as the villain? Here’s where the true responsibility of being a leader lies. Sometimes you must prioritize the success of the team ahead of how your own image is perceived. The ability to elevate those around you is more than simply sharing the ball or making teammates feel a certain level of comfort. It’s pushing them to find their inner beast, even if they end up resenting you for it at the time.

I’d rather be perceived as a winner than a good teammate. I wish they both went hand in hand all the time but that’s just not reality. I have nothing in common with lazy people who blame others for their lack of success. Great things come from hard work and perseverance. No excuses.

This is my way. It might not be right for YOU but all I can do is share my thoughts. It’s on YOU to figure out which leadership style suits you best.

Will check back in with you soon.. Till then

Mamba out

  • whatever, just an asshole trying to justify. personally i don’t believe you need to alienate people to bring out the best. also just having respect for someone as human being isn’t hard to do, regardless of your opinion of an individual. i think kobe as crazy as it may sound has very low self esteem, and i think he doesn’t know how to relate to others.
