Kobe Bryant hypes up Diana Taurasi’s confidence in latest ‘Musecage’
Kobe Bryant’s “Musecage” is an interesting — albeit a strange — concept that Bryant uses to help fuel his motivation. It’s a place where he thinks about all the things that motivate us — good and bad.
Kobe’s latest focuses on WNBA star Diana Taurasi:
Bryant discusses Taurasi’s mindset when she plays and how her confidence help makes her one of the best players in the WNBA. Bryant preaches the importance of building habits over hours and hours of practice to ensure that once the game begins, confidence is at an all-time high. That’s the only way to avoid locking up or freezing up when the stakes are highest.
Taurasi led her Phoenix Mercury to a first-round victory over the Dallas Wings on Tuesday night in a winner-take-all game. She led the way for her team with 26 points and 12 assists. The future Hall of Famer has accomplished just about everything a basketball player can accomplish.
She’s a three-time WNBA champion, two-time Finals MVP, Rookie of the Year in 2004, WNBA MVP in 2009, nine-time All-Star and nine-time member of the All-WNBA First Team. Taurasi will go down as one of the greatest basketball players in history.
Taurasi and the Mercury are looking to bring home another WNBA championship. They’ll face off against the Connecticut Sun in the second round of the playoffs, which will be another winner-take-all game. The playoff format is still relatively new and has certainly upped the stakes in the early rounds of the tournament.
But Taurasi and the Mercury still have an excellent chance to win a championship. If Taurasi’s confidence remains high, it’s hard not to like their chances.
