In today’s age, sports is all that some people have growing up. Kids growing up in bad neighborhoods, sports is about the only way some of them can get off the streets and go to college. Numerous sports stars grew up with nothing and most of them are used to working and fighting to get what they needed to survive. This picture is an example of living to work. Kobe Bryant is in the top 5 greatest NBA players ever. He almost has as many championship rings as the famous Michael Jordan. Both of them lived to play basketball. That is what they both couldn’t live without it. Kobe and Michael had the drive to be the greatest and to get better everyday. They lived to work on getting better because then it helps the team and themselves, because the team will either come with or Kobe and Michael will just take over like they have many of times.
