Episode 4 - Will Smith of the NBA?
Charles Diamond ventures out by his lonesome for this episode that gets back Basketball Reasons' storytelling roots. On episode four, we examine Kobe Bryant's 1996 claim that he would eventually become the Will Smith of the NBA. We attempt to answer Kanye West's age old question of "What the f*** does that mean Kobe Bryant?" and take a look at their careers to determine if Kobe in fact made true on his promise. A shorter, more light-hearted Basketball Reasons episode to get us back in the swing of things.
