I’m a Celtics fan, so as much disdain as I have for Kobe Bryant, no one can deny that his killer instinct and work ethic puts him in a class by himself in comparison to current NBA players. So you can imagine that the Lakers became the team to allow the Miami Heat to get some momentum back, Kobe was probably sick to his stomach.

But Kobe’s a champion (as much as it pains me to say so) because of how he responds to failure. After the game, instead of hitting South Beach, Kobe stayed at the gym and did shooting drills for an hour.
