I need to develop some type of Kobe mental toughness. He played with like 3 broken fingers so my small injury isn't anything.
All Im focused on right now is the next time I get back on the court im gunna be @ 100% and Im gunna destroy that kid, straight embarrass him.
He was talking so much shit and acting like he was mad good, I just cant wait.
You guys ever get extra motivation to go hard when your playing against someone you dont like?
you can play hurt, but cannot play injured. get your knee checked, those injuries in HS can danger your ability later on.
