Video: Kobe Bryant vs Bow Wow 1-on-1

Like taking candy from a … rapper.

Bow Wow is apparently still making rap music, of which Kobe is apparently not a very big fan of.

    Bow Wow isn’t worthy of playing Darko 1-on-1

  • http://www.slamonline.com/ 1982

    Ok, this doesn’t really look like Kobe destroying Bow Wow. This is what would happen if you were 5’5″ and played someone 6’6″ anywhere, pro or not.

  • TheNightWatch*8*

    Gettem Kobe.

  • marc

    He should have wore the special sneakers.

    Bow Wow looks no taller than 5-5.

    “Hey, lace these up Rico.”
    If your job is lacing up Bow Wow’s kicks, you’ve failed in life.

  • idrees

    basketball isn’t the only thing bow wow should work on…

  • http://www.facebook.com The Philosopher

    Agree with Allenp…

  • All Day

    1-on-1…more like 1-on-1/2…Bow Wow is like 5’2″ or 5’3″. Stick to the “scrubs” side of the gym, Bow Wow!!!

    @Marc LOL I watched Like Mike too.


    Where’s Morris Chestnut when Bow-Wow needs him the most? Haha!

    @Allenp, that line is so far and away the highlight of that video.

  • http://www.slamonline.com Cheryl

    lol @allenp.

  • robb

    @Allenp, Ryan Jones I could see that line becoming popular. When you have someone tagging along you just go: “Hey, lace these up Rico.” like, get me a Sprite or something.

    Damn Kobe’s missing a lot of bunnies.

  • T-Money

    i can’t even say that kobe destroyed him because that would imply that kobe was actually playing hoops. kobe was playing him like a dad plays against his 10-year old son in the backyard to let him know what’s what. bow wow is a damn liar, he kept saying in interviews that he could play – dude can’t even dribble properly.


    Lobe is broke as ! lol

    Kobe’s a jerk

  • T-Money

    mitya: i disagree. he had to let bow wow know that NOTHING was going down. could you imagine if bow wow could have pulled a nice cross or j in kobe’s grill? he’d be talking about it on every single record until 2015.

    Man…a Colorado hotel employee was more of a challlenge thto Kobe then Lil Bow Wow was. As much of a Lebron/Heat bandwagoner Bow Wow is and the stuff he tweeted about Kobe, I say he got off light. He cant rap, is child size yet tries to act hard and had the notion he could hang with a NBA player? Kobe wasnt going full speed yet played his best on the ball defense since the 08 Olympics just to make “Like Mike” look “Like Sh!t”.

    If Kobe played D on JJ Barrera like he did on Bow Wow…..

  • NJ4Life

    @Eboy- Then Nike would have to confiscate the tape…

  • mj23

    If Lebron posted up JJ Barrera like Kobe did Bow Wow…..

  • mj23

    @Eboy- If Lebron only had 1/5th of Kobe’s post moves….

  • mj23

    If Lebron had Kobe’s killer instinct…..

  • JRSD

    If Lebron hand 1 of Kobe’s 5 rings. Oh wait I forgot he needs more HELP !!!

    lol @ allenp

  • http://www.slamonline.com Nick the Quick

    Who can guess how much Bow Wow was carrying in his bank roll. Gotta be at least 20K in there.

  • mp7three

    Rico lacing up Bow Wow’s shoes aint a bad gig…his little todddler size sneaker only have like 3 lace holes. He most likely needs Rico to tie them for him as well (double tied so he doesnt trip). Im sure that video is longer with a scene in the restroom with Bow Wow yelling “Rico…I made poo, wipe me” or “Rico, cant reach the top shelf”.

  • O

    He couldn’t just give him ten $100 bills??

  • B-More Mike

    Let it go. I hope the slam bloggers are perfect. Please print your transgressions online so we chastise you 4 the next 10 years. Cats got real quite when a certain players shortcomings were brought up.

  • doyouwantmore

    Its actually pretty cool to see Kobe having fun playing basketball. Maybe if these guys didn’t guard their image so closely their public images would be better.

  • alex80

    That dog chow or whatever look no more than 4’1

  • DOE

    YO KOBE can I play you 1-0n-1 I won’t cry and wine as much as BOW WOW! movie JUST LIKE MIKE must have gone to his head GO BLACK MAMBA!!!

  • DFrance21

    Kobe kinda went hard at Bow Wow, that was corny. And he missed a ton of layups. lol. But it was fun to see that he wasn’t too cool for a little one on one.

    If It was me I’m not going light on Bow Wow – you thought you could win, I’m gonna bust your @$$

  • Felix

    @Chris Mullin’s Accent- you have the best name on here… although “The Black Rick Kamla ” and “Fat Lever” are pretty good… and I also can’t believe Kobe missed those bunnies

  • That Dude

    Oh cool a video of two white guys acting black!

  • rich

    i have an idea, why doesnt someone organize a 1 on 1 league featuring all of the current nba ballers, have sponsors deal w television coverage and what not, have games played in non nba cities to draw even bigger crowds, share the gates evenly among the participants, this way nobody has to gamble playing abroad, fans get to watch their favorite players even w the lockout and third at the end of it all, we get to know who exactly is the best out there.

    Word? Were just gonna ignore Eboy’s comment? Lol… fine.

  • flipnoyce

    If only Kobe wasn’t swept in the playoff…..

  • Riggs

    Kobe, win that money for the camp counselors.

  • Waggle

    Kobe wouldn’t have fared as well against Master P. I wanna see that match up.
