Few players in the NBA want to win more than Kobe Bryant.
His competitive nature and desire to improve every facet of his game have elevated him to an elite level. That same nature and desire would be the foundation of a successful head coaching career.
Kobe understands the game at a level that most players only dream of in their sleep. He knows what it takes to be elite on both sides of the ball, and there isn't an aspect of the game that he couldn't write an award-winning educational book on—well, aside from passing, but you know what I'm saying.
The one thing that helps Kobe stand out amongst his peers is his ability to communicate. He is a master communicator, and while at times he doesn't seem like the best teammate on the floor, he knows how to get his message across to everyone wearing the same jersey.
Remember when Kobe was watching his LA Lakers from home during the playoffs and tweeting in-game adjustments that they needed to make? That's the kind of head coach he would be. He'd adjust on the fly and react to what the game was bringing him instead of relying on a fixed game plan.
Let's not forget that Kobe also learned from the best of the best, Phil Jackson.
Kobe needs to be a head coach at some point. But more importantly, the NBA needs him to be a head coach, because we would all benefit from him donning a suit and tie from October through June.
