DEREK CARR IS THE KOBE BRYANT OF THE NFL

Great article about a great person and competitor who is Mamba approved!
Not a more well like person in all of sports. Everything you want in a leader of your team, company, and community.

“Since anyone can remember, the Raiders quarterback could not get enough of Kobe Bryant. He was addicted to the fadeaways at the buzzer, the snarl, the scowl, the villain persona. Carr first met his idol in junior high before a Lakers-Rockets game in Houston and, for Christmas, his brother David gave him a signed Kobe jersey that still hangs on a bedroom wall.

Eighty-one? The five championships? Carr was glued to it all. Whereas Kobe repeatedly annihilated one high school teammate in games to 100—their closest duel being 100-12—Derek never has a problem throwing disrespectful jams over nephews half his age.

So there was Carr last season, after the first of seven fourth-quarter comebacks, declaring to the masses that he’s driven by a “Mamba Mentality.” And moments later, the self-anointed Black Mamba approved on Twitter.”
