Alabama football is on another level when it comes to championships, nutrition and attracting marquee names to speak to players in the offseason. The University of Alabama is buzzing with excitement as five-time champion of the National Basketball Association, Kobe Bryant, agreed to visit head coach Nick Saban on Thursday and talk to players on having a strong mentality.
Bryant, who sustained a 20-year career with the Los Angeles Lakers (1996-16), was known for his toughness, work ethic and championship mindset. Having the two biggest figures in their respective sport at one conversation table is very exciting. After earning his fifth national title with the Crimson Tide last season, Saban continues to find new ways to reach his players.
Some of the guys took to social media to express their appreciation for Bryant’s endeavor to Tuscaloosa and like the man who given the nickname “Black Mamba,” the Tide anticipates having a killer instinct in the coming season. Alabama has 19 sessions of fall practice remaining before preparations take place for its season opener versus Louisville on Saturday, Sept. 1.
