While Kobe Bryant won’t admit that he’s completely and fully healthy just yet, the Los Angeles Lakers icon certainly looked the part during his recent tour to China.
Promoting his upcoming shoe and his basketball camp, Kobe, being the nice guy that he is decided he’d allow some of his fans to compete against him in a one-on-one situation. Now, just a few weeks ago we saw Kobe Bryant do something similar to an American camper, though he didn’t put on any moves in that shootout but rather opted to play a game of HORSE.
This time though, things were different as Kobe Bryant busted out some rather impressive tricks – the first time we’ve really seen the Los Angeles Lakers star moving and cutting in a healthy-like fashion.
The first video, which can be seen below, features a camper attempting to guard Kobe and needless to say it doesn’t go very well. The camper actually started out strong, but once Bryant started busting out the spin moves and the fadeaway, dude was torched.
The second clip, which features a handful of Kobe Bryant moves shows the multi-time NBA champion destroying multiple opponents, some of which look rather young. Now, I’m not sure I’d expect Kobe Bryant to ever turn off the fire completely, even in a pickup game with fans. But he went HAM on these guys, sending one of the players sliding all over the floor as he attempted to guard Kobe.
Regardless, I’m sure it was the thrill of their life for all those involved.
