Kobe Bryant became the first former NBA player to win an Academy Award, and the legendary Black Mamba is continuing to enjoy his next chapter of retirement as a writer by announcing a new book, titled, The Mamba Mentality: How I Play.

As noted in the Instagram post, the book is a reflection of Bryant's historic 20-year career with the Los Angeles Lakers, along with Hall of Fame coach Phil Jackson and six-time All-Star Pau Gasol also contributing. The trio won back-to-back championships in 2009 and 2010, with Bryant and Jackson also part of a three-peat championship from 2000-02 that featured Shaquille O'Neal.

According to publisher MCD Books, "For the first time, and in his own words, Bryant reveals his famously detailed approach and the steps he took to prepare mentally and physically to not just succeed at the game, but to excel. Readers will learn how Bryant studied an opponent, how he channeled his passion for the game, how he played through injuries. They’ll also get fascinating granular detail as he breaks down specific plays and match-ups from throughout his career."

The Mamba Mentality: How I Play is slated to make its official release on October 23. For additional details and to pre-order, head on over to MCD Books now.
