This is a text message Kobe Bryant sent last year. It is haunting and moving and sad.
But this story is about the recipient of the text, not its sender. Coach John Altobelli lived to enrich others. He embodied the power of teachers. And then he was gone: https://t.co/iCdoXqiqev pic.twitter.com/oHGm851tmq

I know the story is about Altobelli, but it’s really hard not make it about Kobe’s text. That’s one hell of a message and it can be applied to just about any situation on and off the field.
This is what made Kobe so great for so long.
