With nationwide quarantine procedures in full effect, the NBA community is having to find new ways to entertain themselves. While our social lives may be taking a hit, social media is stronger than ever and it is there that people are finding the time to share some of their best stories.

The latest tale came from actor and comedian Kevin Hart, who shared an amazing story of the time Kobe Bean Bryant once went an entire basketball camp without using his right hand.

Incredible story from @kevinhart4real about Mamba’s unparalleled work ethic

As Hart tells it, one of the coaches revealed that Kobe had resisted using his right hand the entire time so that he could strictly work on his left. Obviously it was to the shock of Hart, who realized that Bryant was basically using the camp as a glorified practice.

Kevin, who says he was focused on making the NBA at the time, was obviously given a dose of reality that day. Bryant was so far ahead of the field it was ridiculous.

But most stories involving Kobe show the same thing: his insane work ethic. The dude was willing to work like nobody else and it made him that much better when he stepped on the court.
