I think this goes to show that VC had quite possibly the most god-given ability as a basketball player ever (LeBron aside because there’s a chance he’s not human). VC and Kobe were often compared to one another early in their careers and VC probably had more talent/athletic ability than Kobe, but Kobe clearly had the mental edge — which ultimately made a huge difference. VC’s athletic longevity is something to marvel at right now though especially when compared to Kobe’s dramatic fall during his mid-to-late 30s.
