Derek Fisher: Durant and Kobe Are Relentless
(Derek) Fisher claims the ‘relentless’ desire to improve is something that the two players (Kobe Bryant and Kevin Durant) share, the 39-year-old believes that Durant’s genuine concern for others is what sets him apart.
He said: “The qualities that make the great players like Kobe who they are is just that they’re relentless in their preparation, they’re relentless in their desire to be better than everyone else.”
“What continues to separate Kevin from so many other young guys before him and probably those that will come after him, is that he’s a phenomenal person.”
“He really cares about the success of others around him and I think that is what will always make the conversation about how great he was, once he’s done, very fun to have because whatever success he has his teammates will have it with him and that’s what he’s always wanted.”
