Kobe Bryant Granity Studios 4th Sports Fantasy Novel Coming in March
Kobe Bryant may no longer be with us but his legacy shall live on. Not only was he a great NBA player with legendary records, but he also was an entrepreneur. He certainly had a unique vision. After retiring in 2016, Bryant did not stop being an inspirational public figure. The NBA player started a tech fund with venture capitalist Jeff Stibel. Moreover, he found a passion for telling stories about basketball, one of which inspired his Oscar-winning short film ‘Dear Basketball’. All of this lead to Kobe Bryant creating Granity Studios.
For those of you who don’t know, Granity Studios is a multimedia company that encourages content creation aimed at younger generations. The topic of discussion usually revolves around the love of the game that is basketball. It includes podcast ‘The Punies’ and Kobe Bryant’s own book ‘Mama Mentality: How I Play the Game’.
Before the heartbreaking death of his and daughter Gianna Bryant, Granity Studios tweeted about their upcoming project:

‘The Wizenard’ series is a sports fantasy novel that will be released on 31st March 2020. It is now available for pre-order.
Wizenard Series | An idea by Kobe Bryant
The first-ever book was released on March 19th, 2019. It showcases the story of five basketball players and one motivating coach. It’s a story that is meant to inspire young athletes into finding their true passion for the game. The idea emerged from the legend Kobe Bryant himself meanwhile the author is Wesley King.
If anyone could spark magic inside a fantasy novel, it is definitely Kobe Bryant. The five basketball players are struggling against the harshness of the world. However, everything takes a magical turn when Professor Wizenard comes to town. Soon the players’ lives start to experience new and different changes:
Every player experiences unique and strange visions―visions that challenge everything they thought they knew about basketball, and about their lives and their secrets off the court. To survive the increasingly intense ordeals of training, the Badgers will need to take unimaginable risks, learn to trust their teammates, and confront the darkness within themselves.
If even I, someone who isn’t following sports, finds this story a must-read, then you must too! It is just like Kobe Bryant, inspirational to all.
His messages and wisdom weren’t just for Basketball, in fact, he ignited hope in everyone to live a life they wanted:
“When we are saying this cannot be accomplished, this cannot be done, then we are short-changing ourselves. My brain, it cannot process failure. It will not process failure. Because if I have to sit there and face myself and tell myself, ‘You’re a failure,’ I think that is a worse, that is almost worse than death.”
It is inspiration like this that you will surely find inside ‘The Wizenard’ series.
