About this Quote

In this quote, Kobe Bryant is using a metaphor to describe the difference in skill and strategy in between himself and the more youthful gamers in the video game of basketball. Checkers is a simple video game with limited relocations and techniques, while chess is a complex video game that needs tactical thinking and preparation ahead. By stating "these young guys are playing checkers," Bryant is suggesting that they are not as skilled or knowledgeable as him. He then compares himself to playing chess, recommending that he is on a greater level and is able to outsmart and outmaneuver his challengers. This quote showcases Bryant's self-confidence and belief in his own abilities as a gamer.
