James Harden referred to the biggest lesson he learned from the late LA Lakers and NBA legend, Kobe Bryant, who died in a helicopter crash on January 26.

“Just his competitive spirit… Obviously the journey is one thing, but the steps you have to take to get to that journey is another. That’s what makes you a champion and that’s what defines you,” Harden told reporters, via Salman Ali of Clutchpoints.

Harden was among the NBA superstars that attended Bryant’s memorial service, which took place at Staples Center on Monday (24/02).
