Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson conquered the world of professional wrestling, and is now a blockbuster movie star, but his story of getting to the top after starting as a broke CFL defensive end was one that Lakers GM Rob Pelinka thought it was important for his team to hear.
Johnson addressed the team and ditched a rehearsed speech for a man-to-man talk with the team that’s trying to take the next step in it’s rebuild. He explained that focusing on his struggles along the way and what it felt to have his back against the wall still helps him everyday, even though he’s now a world famous multi millionaire celebrity. He also likes to frequently drop the F-bomb.
It’s like a Ted Talk, but more badass.
