” It’s the Law of the Jungle. The Strength of the Wolf is the Pack. We don’t stand as individuals in this game. We’re a Team Game. The Stronger the Bond is between Players, that’s where the Strength becomes. And the Wolf has to Rely on the Pack to Fulfill what it’s going to do. That’s Really Basketball. ” – Phil Jackson
This Law runs forward and back – that the Strength of the Pack is the Wolf and the Strength of the Wolf is the Pack.
Kobe Bryant won his fifth Championship ring and second Bill Russell NBA Finals MVP award. All the hard work has paid off for Kobe and the Los Angeles Lakers as they repeat again in 2010 as World Champions.
” This is the sweetest – the hardest one so far. I wanted it so bad – my guys picked me up. ” – Kobe Bryant
The Los Angeles Lakers as a TEAM won a hard fought, physical 2010 NBA Finals over their arch-rival Boston Celtics in the deciding game 7. Derek Fisher inspired his teammates with his “12 minute” speech and hit a key 3 pointer to tie the game at 64. A thirty point, fourth quarter Lakers explosion in the final 12 minutes, carried the team to victory.
Pau Gasol was money; huge on offense and defense. A relaxed Ron Artest stepped up and hit a key 3 pointer with 1 minute left in the game. Kobe Bryant playing injured and double-teamed all night had 15 rebounds and hit key free throws with the game in the balance.
Fish’s speech went something like this:
” It all comes down to today. Either we heal as a team, or we’re going to crumble. Inch by inch, play by play, til we’re finished. One inch at a time. Life’s this game of inches – so is basketball. The inches we need are everywhere around us. They’re in every break of the game – every minute, every second.
On this team, we fight for that inch. On this team, we tear everyone around us to pieces for that inch. Because we know when we add up all those inches, that’s going to make the difference between winning and losing – between living and dying!
I tell ya this. In any fight, it’s the guy who’s willing to die, who’s going to win that inch. That’s basketball guys, that’s all it is. Now what are you going to do? “
