"OK, I’VE SEEN ENOUGH."
That’s what Hall of Famer Jerry West said after watching Kobe Bryant workout with Laker legend Michael Cooper. West’s scouting report was simple:
"Best workout I’ve ever seen. He’s better than anybody we have on the team right now. Let’s go."
From West’s memoir: "When I said I had seen enough, I meant it. I knew who he was, and just from looking at his eyes, I knew what he wanted."
Larry Bird once called 5x champion, Michael Cooper, the best defender he ever faced. Cooper’s assessment of Bryant after their head-to-head battle?
"Shit, this guy can play."
This is why Scottie Pippen is a personal favorite. That’s basketball.
This is Dwight Howard.
MUST WATCH: The Brooklyn Nets’ #1 Fan: “Mr. Whammy”
Very proud to present a documentary short I directed for Grantland and Bill Simmons.
Bruce S. Reznick was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY. He’s lived in Brooklyn for 70 years, been married for over 50 years, and has worked as a lawyer for just as long. Oh, and he blocks the foul shots of the Brooklyn Nets’ opponents with the power of his mind.
This man is a great New Yorker, a great basketball fan, and a great person.
I hope you enjoy.
