Lebron, Carmelo, etc. all learned about work ethic from Kobe during the last Olympics. When they met to review tape in the early morning, Kobe would already be covered in sweat from having lifted weights and taking shots when other guys had just woken up.

I remember hearing a story from Kevin Durant who was playing with the Team USA Select team. When they made a stop in Las Vegas the coaches said they could all have an off day, but the bus would take anybody who wanted to go to the gym. Durant convinced Westbrook to come to the gym with him and when they got on the bus the only person inside was Kobe.
