How We’ll Remember Kobe — Kobe Bryant’s teammates (Horace Grant, Brian Shaw, Ron Harper, Devean George) share some great stories on Kobe’s greatness.

Bring the popcorn.

Kobe wanted to be the best. Most guys, they want to be in the NBA. Maybe they want to be an All-Star. Maybe they want to be a max player. But most guys don’t have the passion and drive to really want to be the best. Kobe wanted it from Day One. He was going after MJ. That was his goal.

—Horace Grant
