The best Kobe Bryant quotes of all-time

In a league where we hear all kinds of things from many different players, Kobe Bryant has become quite the philosopher with his quotes. As Michael Jordan did before him, Kobe has unleashed many inspirational quotes as well as as many hilarious puns and statements. Here are some of his best, via Brainy Quotes:

“I don’t want to be the next Michael Jordan, I only want to be Kobe Bryant.”

“These young guys are playing checkers. I’m out there playing chess.”

“The Black Mamba collection of watches is me: It is my alter ego, so to speak. As I mentioned before, it is sharp, cutting edge and sleek which are characteristics I try to apply when I’m out there on the basketball court.”

“I’m chasing perfection.”

“We all know what flopping is when we see it. The stuff that you see is where guys aren’t really getting hit at all and are just flailing around like a fish out of water.”

“Everyting negative – pressure, challenges – is all an opportunity for me to rise.”

And we all know about his marketing campaign from a few years back which promoted the release of his new shoes and gave birth to his now infamous punch line, “You’re welcome.”
