“Aggression. It’s not one game or one play, in particular; it’s just his aggressiveness. It takes a lot of work, a lot of conditioning, skill and thought to be that aggressive and that assertive. He was relentless, man. He just kept coming after you.
He just kept attacking, attacking, attacking – and attacking in different ways, from different spots on the floor, with different forms of footwork. Posting, perimeter, versatility…” ~ Kobe Bryant
