Video: Kobe Bryant in Korea, Playing 1-on-1

KB24 puts on a clinic.

KB24 has kept himself quite busy on the hardwood this summer, and during a Nike promo tour stopover in Korea, Bryant played 1-on-1 against a young camper.

    Who did these kids have to blow to get to play here.
    Reminds me of the cartoon in Space Jam when Jordan has a ball and chain and is forced to play against kids, only Kobe loves it.
    And his shooting % is probably about the same as in the NBA, ugly.

    Kobe’s lost a step

    A clinic? Really? I know he was toying w the kid but he missed all his J’s untill the last one and got blocked by the rim. Also for a dude whos knees are “bone-on-bone”, why is he dunking on lil asian kids??

    U guys find every reason to hate on dude, shut up already.

  • Jamaal87

    He’s clearly not even trying….

    agree with Badnewzballer – especially Peter’s comment is a true sign of basketball expertise. Thanx for your contribution!

  • helllllo

    kobe sucksssssssssssssssssssssssssss…….. in this video.

  • 2K Insider

    This may be a rarity among NBA players, but I think Kobe actually likes to play basketball for fun.

  • J.C.

    This is great. At 32 with bad knees he’s out there in the offseason just having fun with kids and giving them the experience of a lifetime. Like 2K Insider said, Kobe just loves the game. This is what it’s all about.

  • Red Star

    Kobe! Lakers 4 Life!

  • Remo Williams

    epic music btw AND he made kid looks SILLY @5:49

  • EdyP10

    f@$king little asian sh!t.. making us look bad, show some game or back off if ur gna play like that -_-

    ^^^^ only person making anyone look bad is you right now…smh and man whats good with so many haters??? The guy is traveling the globe and encouraging children to play the game we love, and we are seriously analyzing his shooting percentage and athleticism????? whats wrong with todays basketball fan??? smh

  • Aethereal

    Obviously Kobe is trying as hard as he can, and this video is an accurate representation of his shooting and quickness. Every one who thinks this video shouldn’t be taken seriously doesn’t understand that playing 1 on 1 with kids at a basketball camp in the off season is the only true way to learn about some one’s game, and is never to be taken as anything but serious. I’ve also concluded through this full proof measurement that Kobe and Dwyane Wade’s blocking ability is as good as Bill Russell’s.

    thanks to both of the 2 posters above me. haha

  • hendry

    i wish he played against the kids that were standing at the back. it would be more fun to watch

    Couldn’t they atleast get some kids that can play a bit. there was one guy that couldn’t even handle the ball properly..
    Wouldve been nice to see someone actually scoring on him.

  • http://slamonline.com AllDayEveryDay

    the first guy did score on him, but who cares if the competition sucked. Even if it was the professional players in Korea, Kobe can still make any of them look silly. It was just giving kids the opportunity to play with Kobe.

  • http://slamonline.com Ugh

    Actually, the fundamentals of these kids are pretty good. I play pickup ball against club players who fall for the one-hand-shot-fake. Kobe didn’t get these kids with it.
    They gotta clear the rebound, though. Seriously.

  • http://www.slamonline.com Peter

    @Jelte…maybe you shouldn’t read everything so literally dude.


    Wow! I didn’t know we judge NBA players by the way they “perform” against lil kids. Clearly its hateration @ its finest.


    And r u guys seriously nitpicking @ the skill level of these kids? Give the kids a break! They out there having fun and having a blast. Ya’ll remind me of the people that like 2 start sh!t @ a pee-wee soccer game. “Damn! Take that f√¢kin kid out coach!”

  • http://Philosophervision@blogspot.com The Philosopher

    Kobe was classy.
    The kids looked better than Bow Wow…

  • toinefan88

    The Dallas series hurt him. This is not champion swag. I’m interested to see how he bounces back with a new coach and two bigs who clearly need to be involved more offensively for them to win.

  • LP

    I’m sorry, Kobe is supposed to be shooting 70% against these kids, but he is shooting 38% … not knitpicking, but he missed way too many jumpers. Arenas woulda knocked all of those down.

  • LP

    too many missed jumpers…way too many… most NBA players knock jumpers down in their sleep, joking around or not
