Kobe Bryant Learns from MJ…Michael Jackson?

Check out what #24 recently said in a Yahoo Sports interview about his relationship with MJ (the late pop star, not the baller):

They would talk for hours and hours, visiting at Neverland Ranch, and Bryant has long been fortified by the lessons Jackson instilled about the burden of honoring true talent, about the ways to open your mind to be smarter, sharper and insatiable in the chase. “We would always talk about how he prepared to make his music, how he prepared for concerts. He would teach me what he did: How to make a ‘Thriller’ album, a ‘Bad’ album, all the details that went into it. It was all the validation that I needed – to know that I had to focus on my craft and never waver.”
You can knock Michael Jackson all you want, but never question the effect he seemed to have on other people. He was the best at what he did, and even Kobe has admitted to tapping into his brain for advice on mastering your craft. Still, can’t get over that these two are linked. What an odd couple…
