Five-time NBA champion Kobe Bryant is coming to the end of the road in his career with potentially two years before he retires. Bryant is very aware of that fact and has admitted to feeling “mixed emotions” over the last few weeks with the season approaching.

Heading into his 19th NBA season, the veteran shooting guard is getting tested on a daily basis in practice with head coach Byron Scott not holding back in his attempt to change the culture in Los Angeles.

After practice on Friday, Bryant took to Instagram posting a picture out of the window of what seems to be a helicopter with a BODYARMOR sports drink sitting near the window:

In the caption of Kobe’s Instagram post, the future Hall of Famer said the following about Scott’s training camp:

“In 18 years this has been the most challenging camp by far!! Flying home with my @drinkbodyarmor #lakers #upgradeyoursportsdrink #ArmorUp”

Early reports out of training camp at the team’s practice facility have Scott not holding anything back. Kobe and company are put through rigorous drills on a daily basis with an emphasis on running and defense.

Although some are concerned about Scott potentially pushing the team too hard, Kobe has loved every minute of it while seeing teammates develop around him.
