Published Add your comment

He may be one of the greatest players ever to play in the NBA, he holds countless records and is one of the most known names world wide, but LA Lakers talisman Kobe Bryant has a secret.

It is a secret that in his opinion, has helped him climb to the top of the sport for decades and it is a secret that is so simple, he shares it with pretty much everyone who has ever played the sport.

According to Bryant, he only has two moves in his basketball arsenal and given the moves, they are so simplistic, it brings him down to the same level as anyone who has ever picked up a ball.

Bryant has been speaking whilst in China during his Nike RISE campaign and he has been discussing the sport and has reduced it to its lowest form.

When asked about what moves you need to work on in order to become a success in the NBA, he let slip that he only has two moves.

Bryant said: "How many people think you have to have a lot of moves? I have two. On the perimeter, I have two moves. On the post, two moves. That's it. On the perimeter, I'll go right, pull up, shoot; left, pull up, shoot. In the post, turn left shoulder, fadeaway; turn right, fadeaway."

So basically if you master those two moves, you can be the next Kobe Bryant, or not, the 16 time NBA all-star had a little more advice.

Unstoppable words

While Bryant was describing his very limited arsenal on the court, he also added some further advice about how to not only become a good player, but become unstoppable.

According to Bryant, to become unstoppable you need more than just two moves, which he was apparently talking to Lakers team-mate Nick Young about.

"To be unstoppable, you have to first be predictable, because if you're unpredictable you don't know what the heck you're going to do, so how can you dictate to the defense what you're going to do?"

Bryant's work with younger players will undoubtedly be a key role in the development of the next generation of NBA superstars and with advice as simple and honest as this, he will surely always be a role model of the future's greatest players.
