The Boston Globe is reporting that Kobe Bryant hasn’t given up on his quest to get some meaningful basketball in this season.
“Well, I just stick to the script,” Bryant said during All-Star Weekend. “Just try to get better and then go from there. I just try to focus, keep my blinders on, and just do what I have to do and not worry too much about what’s going on around you — but just stay focused on what my responsibilities are. I am [hopeful]. I just need to keep my blinders on and just focus on getting better myself and going from there.”
Bryant is hell bent on returning to his all-star form according to the Globe.
“Absolutely, [but] that’s part of the excitement of the challenge, that level of uncertainty — are my best days behind me sort of thing,” he said. “And to have those conversations with yourself and not be intimidated by that, and not be not succumbing to that, is part of the challenge.
“It’s really the biggest challenge saying, well, maybe this is the end, but then again, maybe it’s not. And it is my responsibility to do all that I can to make sure that it’s not. So, that’s really become the biggest challenge.”
