Champions are drawn to other champions, so it’s no surprise that NBA legend Kobe Bryant — a five-time NBA Finals winner — wanted to visit with the Alabama Crimson Tide.

On Thursday, Bryant did just that, stopping by Alabama’s practice to speak with the Crimson Tide players and give them a motivational message.

As you can see below, the players loved it, and listened intently while Kobe was talking:

Bryant shared a message of leadership, citing the example from his career where he went from a three-peat in 2000 to 2002 with Shaq to working with a new group of teammates and winning two more titles.

It’s almost not fair that the Tide got to hear this message. Coach Nick Saban provides every advantage to his players, and this is one they won’t soon forget.
