VIDEO: A Kobe Bryant Interview From His Rookie Year With Highlights

kobe-bryant-late-draft-pick-lakersDuring some downtime yesterday, I decided to hop onto Youtube to watch some Magic Johnson passing highlights. As most trips to Youtube go, I ended up falling down the conjectural rabbit hole of NBA highlights before stumbling upon this old clip of Kobe Bryant being featured on NBA Action during his rookie year. It was fun being able to see the young, bright-eyed Kobe showing off his handle and flying for some great dunks. Also, seeing him so young was a reminder of how far he’s come as a basketball player and a member of the Los Angeles community. Take a walk down memory lane and check out the video below.
