Kobe Bryant’s off-the-court “attitude” is allegedy to blame for the Lakers’ woes of late, according to a recent story in ESPN The Magazine,  but Showtime head honcho David Nevins was actually impressed by the NBA superstar’s down time demeanor shown in footage from a then-proposed documentary about the player’s recovery from a torn Achilles in April 2013.

Nevins was so taken that he green-lit the film project for a November 2014 debut.

Directed by Gotham Chopra, Kobe Bryant’s Muse follows the athlete as he embarks on a journey both physical as well as psychological.

“When I step on the court, I better be ready,” Bryant told Eurweb.com in July during interviews for the film. “It’s the whole – I had to lead my group of guys and I have to be strong. I have to be confident. I have to know exactly what I’m doing, right? You can’t waver from that. But to get to that point, to feel confident in that point to be able to lead those guys, it requires a lot of preparation. And it requires a lot of looking in the mirror and self assessing strengths and weaknesses and things of that nature. It’s a process.”

Below, Kobe recalls a moment in his childhood when he first understood that physical challenges require just as much mental toughness as athletic prowess.

Kobe Bryant’s Muse comes to Showtime next month.
