3/8/2013 2:22:17 AM copied this story about Kobe from Reddit. I've been a professional athletic trainer for about 16 years and have been able to work with a range of athletes from the high school to professional level. Right now I run in a clinic in Cincinnati and have most recently been training with some players on the Bengals.I activated my reddit account just a moment ago and because I've been seeing the videos of Kobe's most recent dunks and the comments you guys have had to share I decided I might as well chime in what I know about the man. And let me just state by saying that this story doesn't touch on anything we don't know about Kobe but rather that he simply is not human when he is working on his craft.I was invited to Las Vegas this past Summer to help Team USA with their conditioning before they head off to London, and as we know they would eventually bring home the Gold (USA). I've had the opportunity to work with Carmelo Anthony and Dwyane Wade in the past but this would be my first interaction with Kobe. We first met three days before the first scrimmage, on the day of the first practice, early July. It was a brief conversation where we talked about conditioning, where he would like to be by the end of the Summer, and we talked a little bit about the hustle of the Select Team. Then he got my number and I let him know that if he ever wanted some extra training he could hit me up any time.The night before the first scrimmage I remember I was just watched "Casablanca" for the first time and it was about 3:30 AM. I lay in bed, slowly fading away when I hear my cell ring. It was Kobe. I nervously picked up."Hey, uhh Rob, I hope I'm not disturbing anything right?""Uhh no, what's up Kob?""Just wondering if you could just help me out with some conditioning work, that's all."I checked my clock. 4:15 AM."Yeah sure, I'll see you in the facility in a bit."It took me about twenty minutes to get my gear and out of the hotel. When I arrived and opened the room to the main practice floor I saw Kobe. Alone. He was drenched in sweat as if he had just taken a swim. It wasn't even 5AM.We did some conditioning work for the next hour and fifteen minutes. Then we entered the weight room, where he would do a multitude of strength training exercises for the next 45 minutes. After that we parted ways and he went back to the practice floor to shoot. I went back to the hotel and crashed. Wow.I was expected to be at the floor again at about 11 AM. I woke up feeling sleepy, drowsy, and almost pretty much every side effect of sleep deprivation. Thanks, Kobe. I had a bagel and headed to the practice facility.This next part I remember very vividly. All the Team USA players were there, feeling good for the first scrimmage. LeBron was talking to Carmelo if I remember correctly and Coach Krzyzewski was trying to explain something to Kevin Durant. On the right side of the practice facility was Kobe by himself shooting jumpers. And this is how our next conversation went -- I went over to him, patted him on the back and said, "Good work this morning.""Huh?""Like, the conditioning. Good work.""Oh. Yeah, thanks Rob. I really appreciate it.""So when did you finish?""Finish what?""Getting your shots up. What time did you leave the facility?""Oh just now. I wanted 800 makes so yeah, just now."My jaw dropped. Mother of holy God. It was then that I realized that there's no surprise to why he's been as effective as he was last season. Every story about his dedication, every quote that he's said about hard work all came together and hit me like a train. It's no surprise to me now that he's dunking on players ten years younger than him and it wasn't a surprise to me earlier this year when he led the league in scoring.
2/3/2013 5:19:28 AM Dwight needs to get to full strength, that torn labrum keeps hindering him. hah Dwight isn't a team player... so, when players blow by the Laker D and Dwight rejects their shot at the rim, you don't call that a team player?or is it because he doesn't block the shot all the time and while going for the block his man gets the offensive rebound and putback?
1/18/2013 10:12:48 PM Scott Stevens isn't in this comp.[/QUOTE] I really like Bode so much more than Brisse too.Halldor and Nic were in it last year correct?
1/15/2013 12:06:42 AM Scott Stevens isn't in this comp.
1/14/2013 12:08:53 AM I took your advice batman, and edited the hyperlink into the first post, I plan to edit the next round in as well.
1/13/2013 11:55:00 PM a friend told me that in socal when the lakers win you get a text code fr free wings from wingstop. Is that why they've only won once this (new)year?
1/8/2013 10:42:46 PM I voted for Bode over Brisse, I can't really explain why, but I think it's because my jaw dropped a lot more during Bode's video.
1/8/2013 10:33:09 PM Basically to drive the point home, focus on BOOTS THAT FIT. http://trusnow.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=45408 It stinks to have a board and binding combo that's awesome and then not be able to ride because your boots hurt your feet terribly or don't fit right.

1/8/2013 1:55:00 PM I love netflix and the Sons of Anarchy.
12/31/2012 7:00:25 PM stance angles are all preference. I'd say try to become a decent rider going regular, then when you form the muscle memory try to ride switch.
12/31/2012 6:57:22 PM can't wait to go meet up with friends and dance the night away.
12/19/2012 6:51:36 AM Wreck it Ralph was so amazing thanks to all the video game references.
12/19/2012 2:08:10 AM I definitely feel it being unbelievably slow when posting on the forum. It'll take at least a minute to say its posted. The quote button doesn't work either. Everytime I try to quote someone it has me quoting the last poster instead of, for example, the OP.
12/17/2012 11:40:30 PM So basically you only want them endorsed by park riders. EDIT annnd I failed to realize there's also boardercross. Spenser gets the point across better than I did.
