Manny Pacquiao is a huge basketball fan, and when it comes to dedication to preparation, he finds inspiration in Kobe Bryant.

"Players who want to try and be like him and make a name for themselves in basketball, or whatever sport they play, then they have to do the hard work in training," Pacquiao says.

Part of Pacquiao's training for his May 2 mega-bout against Floyd Mayweather is hitting the basketball court.

"Cross training with sports like basketball and its cutting moves help your strength and balance in your body," Pacquaio says.

But whatever the activity, focus is essential, and that's the angle emphasized as Pacquiao stars in the latest episode of Nike Training's new documentary series.

Previous segments were devoted to Marcus Mariota and Rory McIlroy.
