Add to Watchlist

Kobe Doin' Work is a 2009 television documentary created and filmed by Spike Lee revolving around the life and times of basketball superstar, Kobe Bryant. The film focuses in on one and only one day of the superstar's long and star studded career, a particularly drama filled and intense game against the San An Spurs.

The film was sanctioned by Bryant who had, until this time, been notorious camera shy; this was the first official documentary revolving around Bryant's life and career. The film mainly focuses in on Bryant's drive, his mottoes and philosophy and characteristic upfront attitude, rather than basketball itself.
