In a recent interview with USA Today, Kobe Bryant spoke about his mission to inspire young sports enthusiasts to achieve their full potential. The former Lakers star stated that "You got to do what you love to do. I love telling stories. I love inspiring kids or providing them with tools that are going to help them. I have an idea for an entire universe that centers around sports, fantasy and magic. It's as if the Olympics and Harry Potter had a baby. Coaching youth sports is so important to take very seriously because you're helping the emotional (development) of young kids. So it's understanding not to be overcritical and understanding that (there) are going to be mistakes."
