Kobe Bryant’s Muse (New Trailer)

Basketball is a vehicle through which I’m questioning myself, because basketball is a vehicle in which I learned about myself.

For anyone who has ever played basketball at some sort of competitive level, I feel like you would resonate with Kobe Bryant in his new trailer for his upcoming Showtime doc, Kobe Bryant’s Muse. The quote above is where I’m getting at, as Kobe cites basketball as his teacher, which triggered an immediate memory to little metaphors I have learned through playing ball all my life. Hey, after all… ball is life, right?

Kobe Bean also talks about feeling the energy on the court and celebrating the journey throughout his career and, though this is implied, in his present-day team struggles with his career waning. I feel like Kobe, and you reading this now, would like our New Age section.

Check out the cool new trailer up above as it reveals the release date of Kobe Bryant’s Muse — February 21st.

Kobe Bryant’s Muse documentary coming this fall

A new documentary is coming out on Kobe Bryant as the Black Mamba himself will be the primary focus in Kobe Bryant’s Muse. The film will document the past two injury-laden seasons that only saw the Lakers superstar play in 6 games. As Kobe says, he views the doc as an “introspective—it’s more about who or what has inspired me.” Looking forward to what’s sure to be a motivational look into the rehab and mindset of the Black Mamba. Look out for Kobe Bryant’s Muse on Showtime at the start of the season in November.

Via L.A. Times:

Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant is not only preparing for the final phase of his championship career, he’s also getting ready for his close-up.

Bryant is the focus of an upcoming documentary, “Kobe Bryant’s Muse,” a feature-length film about his life, inspirations and challenges, which will air on Showtime this fall.

The project, which is being directed by Gotham Chopra, has been in production for 10 months and is still being shot. It is scheduled to be broadcast in November.

“This is about what has inspired me in my life and career,” Bryant said during an appearance at the Television Critics Assn. “It’s about looking forward to the challenge of what the next stage will be.”
