Kobe Bryant vs. Jeremy Lin; NYK vs. LAL Birthday Video

Jeremy Lin and Kobe Bryant share the same birthday.  Kobe Bryant turns 36 today.  Jeremy Lin turns 26.  While they are a decade a part in age, they share similar qualities in how they approach their life in basketball.

Those who recognize this birthday, may also recognize that their astrological sign is Leo.  After doing a little research, finding this information did not surprise me.


Work Life

Leo is driven to excel. He never accepts defeat and will continue fighting until he wins every challenge. Once he’s taken on a project, he’ll not only achieve his goals, he’ll also far exceed any expectations. He makes a great boss since his managerial style is one of being a mentor and teacher. He derives great satisfaction from seeing his teammates excel.

Jeremy Lin and Kobe Bryant are two sides of the same coin.  It makes complete sense that Kobe Bryant is driven to excel and wants to win every challenge.  It makes sense that Jeremy Lin derives satisfaction from seeing his teammates excel.

So, let’s take it back to where it all began.  Jeremy Lin was in the middle of “Linsanity” while Kobe Bryant was in the middle of a championship hunt.  Kobe didn’t think much of Jeremy Lin’s hot streak, but this game may have caught his attention.

There’s nothing better than seeing two competitors going at it, bringing their “A” game to the NBA floor.


Sit back, relax, and enjoy this thirteen minute highlight reel.
