Kobe Bryant discusses self-doubt

The NBA’s most confident player showed insecurity on a night he almost single-handedly carried the Lakers to a win.

After posting 38 points in the Lakers’ 107-102 loss Friday to the Clippers, Bryant tweeted on his new account.

“Thoughts of self doubt-Am I done?” Bryant tweeted. “Is this how my career will end?? I REFUSE to give in to these thoughts.”

Bryant elaborated on self-doubt following Saturday’s practice.

“Everybody has it,” Bryant said. “The way I react to it is different than everybody else. I don’t feed into it. I’m able to face it. I’m able to deal with it and I’m able to get through it. That’s probably the difference between myself and other people.”
