Family time, hanging out with friends, being a great friend, being a great son, nephew, whatever the case may be. There are sacrifices that come along with making that decision.”-Kobe Byrant

That was around the time I realized that intimidation didn’t really exist if you’re in the right frame of mind.”-Kobe Byrant
