Bryant provides the show an inside look at his offseason workouts as the former MVP looks to regain his top form. The feature includes Bryant on the challenges he’s faced during his comeback and his relentless pursuit to prove his doubters wrong, along with behind-the-scenes footage of his workouts at the Lakers’ training facility.

This week’s series premiere will also take a look at new faces in new places following an eventful NBA offseason, along with a visit with Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook as the NBA All-Star launched his Barney’s New York fashion collection, Westbrook XO. Westbrook was joined at the New York City event by teammate Kevin Durant and Kenneth Faried of the Denver Nuggets.
