If you follow me on any social media site, doesn’t take long to find out that I am a huge Kobe Bryant fan. His 83-minute documentary airs tonight on Showtime and I will be front and center in a television. The documentary directed by Gotham Chopra will show rarely seen footage of the 36-year-old Bryant’s childhood in Italy. The five-time NBA champion tells the Los Angeles Times: “I didn’t want to write a book, I don’t have the patience to do that. We wanted to create something really different, very truthful. Cinematically, we wanted to do something that would be different fro the ways documentaries are shot. This was about doing something that was fun, but also honest.
I am excited to see more of Kobe’s style off the court but we all know that we are seeing the end of one of the best players to ever grace the NBA’s court career come to an end. Bryant is curenty in his last year of his contract with the Los Angeles Lakers and his is just coming off surgery of his torn rotator of his right shoulder. Bryant hope that this documentary will help him be better understood. The documentary was originally scheduled to air back in 2014 but because of Bryant’s injury, it was delayed. Director Chopra said he wants to show a element on Bryant’s life “That couldn’t be Googled.”
‘The “Kobe Bryant’s Muse’ will air on Showtime Februray 28, 2015 at 9pm EST.
