Video: Kobe Bryant Vacations In Italy, Interviews With AC Milan

KobeCamp 7.10.13-3Kobe Bryant is known for his offseason excursions. Each summer he takes a trip to the Philippines and/or China, promoting basketball and his global brand. This summer has been especially difficult for Bryant due to the fact that he’s rehabbing from an Achilles injury that could keep him sidelined for the beginning of next season.

Bryant was recently in Italy and did an interview with AC Milan, and talked about his love for the squad and mentioned what he believes being a champion is all about.

“It takes a lot of hard work to become a champion. When you wake up in the morning you must start working like it was the last day in your life.”

For Laker fans, this mentality isn’t surprising. It’s one of the things that made Los Angeles (and fans around the world) fall in love with Bryant in the first place. Still, Bryant is rehabbing each day with the hopes to come back strong and lead the Lakers to prominence once again.

Below is the complete Kobe interview (translation is in the video), so you get to hear Kobe test out his Italian while reading the subtitles. Enjoy.
