Video: Kobe Bryant – Depth of Intensity

From the looks of last month’s trailer, we expected Meir’s ‘Kobe Bryant – Depth of Intensity’ mix to be something epic. Sure enough, the up-and-coming Israeli mixmaker surpassed expectations with this breathtaking product. With a mix like this on his resume, Meir has officially earned the ‘rising star’ designation among the mixmaking hobbyists.

    I had to pause the video at the 1:55 mark to say this: Kobe Bryant is cold as hell.

  • slick ric

    I think Kobe is probably one of the more overrated players ever. He’s great and all but just because his game is similair to Jordans dont mean he the best right now.

    I feel like race played a part in this…

    Before anyone even does…PLEASE do not even whisper LeBron’s name in the same sentence as KB24.

    Lebron cannot lead. Cannot come through when his team needs him. Cannot deal with pressure. Cannot win championships. Cannot do much else offensively other than charging at the hoop with his big frame and speed. Read and understand what I am saying, don’t even say his MFing name anymore. KB24 murders ALL.

    Please don’t turn this comment section into Lebron/Kobe/M.J debate. Let’s just enjoy this mix for what it is. If you want to do any of that childish insult filled arguing clik my name and go to Dimemag……..

  • JTaylor21

    WHAT the deuce? someone else is ignorant enough to think that I would make that first comment. SO many little children on this site, SO here’s what I’m really saying…..PLEASE do not even whisper Kobe’s name in the same sentence as MJ. Kobe has always been carried to a chip by his talented teammates. Is overrated with regards to clutch ability. Cannot do much else offensively besides forcing every wild shot imaginable and hoping for a miracle to fall from the sky or get bailed out by the refs. Is a HIGHLY overrated defensive player that got his a** light up for 60 by a player 3 inches shorter. LeBron has always DESTROYED and CONQUERED kobe’s skinny a** despite playing on the less talented team so just imagine what would happen when LA plays Mia. The heat are going to burn that purple up so much that everyone in the stands would go home with a serve case of the munchies. MJ>>>>>>Kobe, Bron>>>>>>Kobe, end of discussion.

    There are many “chiefs” in the NBA; yet, there currently, there is only one “KING” of the NBA. And
    to wear that title (pun intended), one have a lot of catching up to do. Unfortunately, you can’t catch what you can’t touch.

    A man made is a MADE MAN.

    @JTaylor21….seriously if you can’t respect Kobe Bryant’s game AT LEAST, you hold no credibility as a basketball fan….PERIOD. Thats not me being a megafan, thats me being real. Look at all of Kobe’s contemporaries, all the guys he came in the league with, the ’96-’01 classes, everybody around his age thats playing today, and name 1 just 1 who has been able to constantly position atop the elite echelon of players in this league. YOU CANT. Name one who has been able to hold his own against Father Time, overcome and play through constant injury, and constantly evolve his game to remain dominant year after year, season after 82-game + playoff season. Can you name a more dominant, more demanding of defensive attention, below the rim, back court player in this league??? Name just one of those guys he came up with, who after 14 years in the L can be counted on nightly for 30 points??? Seriously!!! maybe you just have never stepped on a basketball court yourself, maybe thats the case, because anyone who plays this game with any kinda passion whether NBA, college, HS, recreation or whatever can respect what this guy does nightly. Put plainly, he’s your favorite players favorite player, and the guy he’s modeling his career after.

  • karma89

    Of course guys like JTaylor cant acknowledge that, he’s like 10 years old.

    Kobe has been the best shooting guard in the league since about 2001-2002. Try to find another player with that level of sustainability in any position and you’ll see why he’s revered the way it is.

    Lebron is a player who, when his atheleticism fades, wont be left with much else besides a terrible jump shot and shaky 3 point shooting. I guarantee it.

    You’ll appreciate Kobe when he’s gone.

    However, I think we’re found the Kobe replace in KEvin Durant. Same passion, same respect for the game.

    @JTaylor21 your stupidity knows no bounds.

  • fresh1

    Not sure i agree with Mr. Jtaylor21. Kobe is absolutely unbelievable. Thank you very much for this video. You did a great job with it!

    Lakers to 3peat…who’s down?

  • slimshady


  • Blackphantom

    @AdrianC513 C’mon now, I love Kobe too but he isn’t the GOAT, he’s a Top 15 player guaranteed, probably Top 10, but he isn’t the greatest

  • http://gregoden.com roybot

    Haha someone here calls themselves a basketball fan but they wont adknowledge Kobe Bryant’s greatness. Im a Blazer fan so i have every reason in the world to hate Kobe…..But i dont, I admire him so much for his skills and his passion. JTaylors just hurt that he doesnt possess the athletic ability of LeBron James nor does he have the willpower and passion to get better like Kobe. Let me put it simply, LEBRON WISHES HE WAS KOBE. But hes not, so thats why he had to join forces with 2 other great players to win his (hopefully) FIRST damn title!

  • http://slamonline.com The Black Rick Kamla

    @karma89….and if you were a fan of the sport you’d also know that perhaps the most impressive attribute of Lebron’s game, perhaps even moreso than his legendary athleticism, is his court vision and awareness, and with his height/size/strength, his combination of court vision and a more than respectable outside shot from 15ft out would only continue to terrorize defenses (much like Magic Johnson) if his athleticism is to dramitically ‘fade’ as you so put it…but of course we get so caught up in Kobe vs. Lebron they fail to see the abilities of both players…lets just respect the game

  • Bob

    I’m a Laker fan and I thought that video kinda sucked. Can’t really see the plays he makes with all the fake flash effects and hyper editing. Also, Abbott, over at TrueHoop, called this “the mother of all Kobe highlight reels.” Kinda funny considering it’s only from this last season.

  • http://www.kb24.com The Seed

    GREAT VIDEO of the REAL KING. Also Kobe has been at the top for a while and people do need appreicate him, they don’t make them like Kobe anymore. Players today rather join their friends and play, instead of building a legacy for themself. Kobe has prove the doubters wrong by winning two rings and is looking for his sixth and the video just illustrates his drive to be the best ever.
    @JTAYLOR21, Dude stop talking just to be talking, I have told you that before, you can be intelligent sometimes, but saying Lebron is better than Kobe right now is straight fools gold cat. Also if my favorite player Kobe, left the Lakers to play with other superstars and couldn’t lead the Lakers as the man, I would he upset and find a new favorite player. Lebron could have went to Knicks or Bulls and to me been in a better situation, instead of I need major help/can’t score 30pts line, but you have stated you use to be a Kobe fan, but your Lebron fathom is straight bananas holmes, because Lebron has alot to improve on, if he didn’t he would have led his back to back best record teams to the NBA Finals and got a ring. I just get tired of seeing people make you look stupid on a regular basis. BOOK IT!!!

  • dfortruth

    I seen better Kobe videos. Kobe is the best.

  • http://www.utahjazz.com ScottyB

    How come that guy behind Kobe has no neck?

  • Jake

    This video was racist.

  • http://www.twitter.com/TheDiesel Anton

    Someone should make one of these epic videos of a mediocre player and see if it makes him look great. Deshawn Stevenson: The Reckoning. Get on it, mixtape makers!

  • EJ

    JTaylor is probably bruceblitz. Lebron destroys Kobe?? If 1 jumper and block on Kobe is destroying, then what do you call hitting 2 rainbow fadeaways in Lebron’s face, and 1 left haded floater on Lebron’s face, 3 clutch shots in a row on Lebron’s face, a triple right in Lebron’s face and hitting 2 clutch jumpers in Lebron’s face so that they had to switch Tayshaun Prince on Kobe, and that didn’t help either. Who destroys who?

  • Ronald

    I love how the article writer gives the proper props to the mix creator. Thanks Slam! Great vid btw. And ROFLMAO@Jake.

  • Blackphantom

    When JTaylor’s comments can’t get objected by others anymore, it happens over and over again. Dude just face it that both are great players and leave it at that until late October.

  • http://www.threadsandkicks.com.au Eduardo

    Hahahaa @ Boing Dynasty “I feel like race played a part in this…” That was the best comment ever!

  • http://www.threadsandkicks.com.au Eduardo

    I’m from Australia and Basketball is very small her as Sport. One thing that I’ve noticed is that Kobe Bryant doesn’t seem to have an official Documentary DVD? Has there been one released as they haven’t brought it out here. It’s a shame because with all the highlights, accolades and accomplishments that he’s had he should at least have a DVD such as Jordan’s Come “Fly With Me”, Iverson’s “Answer”, or “Ankle Breaker” series. Those DVD’s were distributed in Australia.

    Wow, i actually thought i read a JTaylor comment that didnt have something negative in it. then i re read it. Always something to hate on

  • JP

    I’m tired of seeing mixes like these. What do you really get out of it? A bunch of gee-whiz golly effects with so much over-editing it’s like watching flashes of nothing. What’s so great about that? I don’t want to see a half second cut of a dribble, then a cut of a pumpfake, then the cut of a shot, then a cut up of a ball going through the air, and then a cut of ball going through the net. Show me the whole f**kin play so I can actually SEE it.

    The old school mixers like Yinka Dare and Kblaze used to do it right.

  • http://winstonandthetelescreen.com WinstonAndTheTelescreen

    that was a fantastic video, whats funny about the kobe lebron “debate” is that a highlight clip from just one season of kobe’s, as an old man no less, would absolutely destroy a highlight clip of lebrons entire life, a bunch of really nasty hard dunks, usually on no one, maybe 3 or 4 game winners- any debate is a joke

    _the grainy adds to the artistic dynamic dimensions_expressing the intensity beneath the surface as a multifaceted metaphor.
    eat that 4 yrs of art schoo!

  • Slic ric

    Lebron is definitely better, he’s only 25, and his first seven years have been better than Kobe’s.He does everything better than Kobe besides game winning shots. Thats the only thing Kobe has over that guy. I don’t wanna hear championships because thats team achievements, Kobe wouldn’t even have his fifth if it wasn’t for Ron and Pau in the last game.
