Kobe Bryant visited the Children’s Hospital Of Orange County on Monday.

Along with passing out Lakers gear, the 40-year-old former NBA player did a LIVE table read of his new, family-friendly podcast, The Punies.

Kobe is also gearing up for the release of his new book—The Mamba Mentality: How I Play—on October 23.

‘The mentality book is really about process and craft. It’s really a basketball bible,’ he told Howes.

‘A lot of things that I learned through the game were through photos. You can look at a photo and see a player making a move and learn from the angle of his feet or how he’s using his hands on defense. I really break things down to the smallest detail through that and that’s what you’ll see in this book.’

Kobe doesn’t look like he’s missing playing basketball at all. He gave everything he had to the game, and now he’s paying it forward. The Mamba is a business, man.
