Former Laker says Kobe Bryant using helicopter to attend practice urban myth

We’ve all heard the suggestion that Los Angeles Lakers icon Kobe Bryant has flown in a helicopter to attend practice.

It’s a little of the wall, sure, but have you ever had to drive in Los Angeles traffic? Especially in rush hour? You might actually make it to your destination quicker by walking.

So – while it was a bit over the top – actually flying to practice wasn’t completely out of the question. Though former Los Angles Lakers teammate Devin Ebanks, who spent parts of three seasons with Bryant, says he never saw the Black Mamba arrive at practice in a helicopter.

You’ve heard the stories about Kobe Bryant and his legendary chopper … but former Lakers player Devin Ebanks tells TMZ Sports he NEVER saw the Mamba helicopter to practice once!!!!

Ebanks — who spent 3 seasons with the Lake Show — was at LAX this weekend when he dropped the bombshell … telling us the helicopter stories are more urban legend than fact.

Guess Kobe had to take one of his 932 exotic cars to practice.

Tough livin.
