Kobe wrote “The Wizenard Series” a training camp book and he said that his daughters played a big role in the writing of the book.
The book was inspired by Kobe’s life experiences, his fears, struggles and how he was able to conquer them. Harry Potter and Mary Poppins also motivated him to write the book. According to the preliminary report that was released, the helicopter crashed because of a thick fog that gave the pilot poor visibility.
