After the game between the Milwaukee Bucks and the L.A. Lakers, Kobe Bryant specifically talked about watching Giannis Antetokounmpo achieving his first triple-double in the NBA, and not only.

As the “Black Mamba” revealed, Giannis and his family visited the Lakers‘ locker rooms, along with Bucks head coach Jason Kidd. Kobe Bryant talked for almost five minutes with the young player, offering him sage advice.

After all, Kobe Bryant knows the path of success. “Hard work, and sacrifices”, he said. “That’s what I told Giannis. He has the potential to be a great player, he has the physical skills, the intelligence. He has the talent of a great player, but he has to make the choice to become one”.
