Kobe Bryant, Showtime annouce documentary project

For most of his career, Kobe Bryant kept to himself, with stories often seen as dark mysteries. By joining Twitter, Bryant became less mysterious and more open. This fall, fans will get one of their first glimpses into Bryant’s everyday life as Showtime announced a documentary coming out titled Kobe Bryant’s Muse.


The film will be directed by ESPN 30 for 30 director Gotham Chopra. The documentary will showcase Bryant’s formation into the superstar figure he is now, including his upbringing and showing his mentorships. According to Ramona Shelbourne of ESPNLA, all the usual suspects will be appearing in the movie.



This will likely be the first time Shaq and Bryant directly tackle the subject of their break-up in the mid-2000s, which broke apart a likely dynasty after three titles.


Tell us below what you’re most excited to learn about Bryant in this documentary!

    Had Shaq stayed in shape… and Bryant not need to be the alpha right away… they could have worked better together… Not to mention, probably win 3 more titles before Shaq retired… meaning, Kobe would be going after #7 rather than 6… Maybe if they kept Jerry West, that core would have stayed together longer…

    the drama is always in LA…
