Kobe Bryant’s reputation as a teammate is, perhaps, not the greatest. And he recently admitted that his leadership is not about being the nicest person to people.

But many who have played with Kobe say otherwise. Most recently, former Laker Darius Morris praised Kobe Instagram on his 36th birthday:

In addition to the picture posted, Morris posted a lengthy message in which he spoke on Bryant as a teammate and all he had done for him:

He schooled me on the business and lifestyle of the NBA. Although a couple jokes here and there He was never negative or talked down to anybody and I was there when went thru some tough times but he went out of his way to be helpful towards me, push me, and to think big picture in life and to have the mental toughness to remain focus and never be satisfied What more could you want from a teammate?

Morris also spoke on Kobe’s love for the game, and said he understood how someone who puts his everything into basketball could find it difficult to trust others to do the same.

Morris may not have been able to become the player the Lakers hoped he would, but he was still able to get life lessons from Kobe and he seems to be extremely grateful for that.
