Kobe Bryant compares his final years in the NBA to brushing his teeth
Kobe Bryant has written an article for Derek Jeter's player perspective website, The Players' Tribune, describing his thoughts on passing one of his idols, Michael Jordan, on the all-time scoring list.
In it Kobe reveals some interesting stories about almost quitting basketball for soccer, and his admiration for Jordan. He also has a very weird extended metaphor about brushing his teeth.
"I’m aware of Father Time’s curfew. He has sent me to my room to brush my teeth before he tucks me in, but I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t walk to the bathroom slowly. I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t act as if someone misplaced the toothpaste. I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t brush every tooth twice, brush my tongue three times, floss until my gums bleed and rinse with mouthwash until the inside of my mouth burns and then goes numb."
Kobe must be angling for a Crest sponsorship or something.
