Life after the NBA for Kobe Bryant is going to be a tough time. The competitive spirit and that internal fire. How will Kobe use those traits this time next year? Well, what about motivational speaking? During tonight's game against the Boston Celtics, Bryant was spotted on camera giving a little pep talk to teammate Roy Hibbert, calling him by name, which is apparently "Motherf***er," and following that up by telling him, "I believe in you!"

Kobe may need to think of a new nickname for Hibbert because LeBron already claimed it.
