Video of Kobe… this is good

Is it “real”? Probably not. Is it amusing? Yes it is.

    dats my man Black Mamba. MVP son!

    Also, first!

  • Monee

    hehehe Ronny……good jump, are those the new hyperdunks???????


  • jbas

    1st? omg. this is legit

  • http://www.mybleedingfingertips.blogspot.com/ Myles Brown

    I dont see why he couldnt do something like that, but I just hope that he wasnt stupid enough to actually try.

  • Jack

    It can’t be real, man. Surely the Lakers would never let this happen.

  • Zee!

    Good thing shaq wasn’t driving….

  • Whitemamba


  • namik

    he couldnt do something like that because there is no way he could actually stay at the same point in the air with a speeding car under him. Cars actually displace the air around them fellas, and Kobe wouldve smacked his face in the pavement if he actually did this. As always, soccer got there first. Check out Cristiano Ronaldos eerily similar video on youtube,

  • WhaHuh


  • http://www.lkz.ch/basket Darksaber

    Displace air? like i care. This is the first AWESOME thing i’ve ever seen Mambiatch do that show’s he’s just a kid pretending to be the man, and i LOVE it. Holy crappo, when did Kobe become cool? and an Aston nonetheless, great choice Kob’s.

  • the Birdman

    It you look at the shadows, you can see that Kobe’s actually jumping beside the car (not over top of it).

  • RV

    wouldn’t it look that way if the car passed right next to him and he jumped and cleared it from our view?

  • RV

    birdman beat me to it lol…but can’t wait for the lawsuits to begin when kids actually try this on their own…

  • http://www.myspace.com/bangonthetableproductions Alpha-bet

    RV.. I can see it now..lol.. some dumbass trying to jump over an Escalade or some sh*t…

  • French Toast

    Very good one ZEE !
    Good thing shaq did not try the same trick too (imagine the Aston Martin after the crash)

  • French Toast

    I watched it closely, Kobe jumped at the left side of the car not in front of it

  • http://www.lkz.ch/basket Darksaber

    Still looks awesome. Apart from Kobe going behind the back then 180ing on Denver, or the alley oop he put on iverson a few years back, this is the coolest thing dude’s done in a while (yeah yeah, 81 bla bla, who cares), optical illusion or not.

  • Adam

    He’s standing right over the shadow of the street lamp, which the right wheels of the Aston drive over. I still don’t buy it. I’m sure they filmed them seperately then put em together somehow. Whatever, I like the shoes.

  • thesubwayconnection

    Interesting. Haha.

  • peteb80

    I hate these “let’s make it look like these dudes went out totally spontaneously to do some extremely cool sh1t like young rebels!” commercials, while they copy other people’s stuff, it’s all carefully planned, there’s probably like 30 people on set and they cgi half of it. It’s just so fake in every aspect. Hey, that fits Kobe perfectly.

  • Eazy-Yi

    Fresh to death

  • http://myspace.com/bodiebarnett jbn74sb

    One of my co-workers just rolled his son’s Hot Wheels down the hall way. I almost cleared it.

  • iLL wiLL

    Why didn’t Ronny jump?

  • peteb80

    Ronny only jumps when Kobe tells him to.

  • Allen

    That’s Simon Cowell’s car.

  • http://www.kb24.com Kobe24Bryant


  • Raynmann

    it’s dangerous, but if you get the timing down, it isn’t that hard to do, with the speed of the car you don’t have to stay that long in the air

  • http://fjsdklf.com Jukai


  • Cameron

    still a crazy vertical. i have that jacket! i want those shoes. (not for jumping over cars but for bball purposes)

  • http://slamonline.com Holly MacKenzie

    In other Lakers news… Bynum has NOT been cleared to return to practice, guess we won’t be seeing him in the regular season. Get well, Andrew. And, this video, is sick. Fake or not.

  • Juddy

    lol that had no point at all…all that money no damm brains

  • iLL wiLL

    If Hobe wanted to make it more interesting, he should have worn glasses to give the viewer a first person point of view. But in true bit*ch fashion, Hobe opts for the ‘jump beside the car’ trick.

  • RV

    he should have just jumped over it like that kid in the commercials, that’s probably harder to do since the car doesn’t speed by and you have to jump forward not just straight up

  • johnnyrooks

    kobe got a 45 inch vert ithink that it is real kobe!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • http://www.slamonline.com iLL wiLL

    Um, wow, johnnyrooks sure loves him some Kobe.

  • nastruthomas

    wheres the the wack/lame sam rubenstein columns been? i miss having laughs at those…

  • http://slamonline.com Russ Bengtson

    I hear LeBron jumped over a bigger car but it was in the East so it didn’t count.

  • Sam


  • Captain America

    No Bynum no 2nd round.

  • J Donuts

    Hahahaha Russ. Always with the wit.

  • http://si.com damascus fields

    i dont know if its real or not…. but kobe jump super high…. he was up there…. propably almost 4 feet in the air

  • The Promise

    If it was real that was so aewsome…hes probably capable of doing that…oh by the way Kobe,I wont try it at home…

  • Bryant Reeves

    If some kid tries this and gets crippled can he sue Kobe and Nike for millions?

  • RV

    probably not , since he did say don’t try this , didn’t seem like much of a warning, but its probably enough in court

  • Vigoss

    Those people who were thinking that Kobe jumped to the side of the car are wrong. Look at the shadows as reference. However, they may have either CGI’s it, or really lowered the car. If Bowen was driving the car he may stopped underneath the man.

  • AC

    I tried the hotwheels version too… Didn’t go so good.

  • Ken H.

    *laughs* at russ’s comment.
    sarcasm is one of your better qualities Russ.

  • Logan

    hah like Kenny said, if you have an Aston Martin, go ahead and try it!

  • http://andotsiry.deviantart.com/gallery/ TB


  • http://www.truthismygame.com/ Kevin

    yea, Russ wins best comment in the thread with the Lebron line.. lol

  • Logan

    kobe’s reaction to being asked about this : ‘Hollywood!’

  • http://www.msssn.com WeezyF.B.

    i like the part where he jumped over a car…

  • http://www.slamonline.com Ryan Jones

    If Myles found video “evidence” of Kobe jumping over a nine-story building, he’s say:
    “I dont see why he couldnt do something like that.”

  • http://www.slamonline.com Ryan Jones

    If Myles found video “evidence” of Kobe jumping over the Sears tower, he’d say:
    “I dont see why he couldnt do something like that.”

  • http://www.slamonline.com Ryan Jones

    If Myles found video “evidence” of Kobe’s shoes curing cancer, he’d say…

  • http://www.slamonline.com Ryan Jones

    Also (sorry Myles): “Trust your boy? Trust your boy?”
    You figure he tried that line on Vanessa?

  • http://www.slamonline.com Ryan Jones

    BTW, if this is your lengthy rebuttal, I win. I mean, I win anyway, but you know.

  • Jolst

    Just an Aston Martin? Nate Robinson can jump over a Hummer.

  • http://slamonline.com Holly MacKenzie

    Kobe said last night postgame the video wasn’t real! Still funny stuff.

  • adams

    Did being honest make him cry again?

  • illydiva

    Why are people so critical? No love lost on Kobe from me, but I think the commercial is hot–giving us Kobe as the show off kid (that most men are anyway) having a little fun. Even if it’s not real, most of y’all pay good money for movies and cable that show stuff that’s not real but looks cool or interesting anyway. Because Kobe’s not a self-centered actor making millions, ….oh wait. Never mind.

  • Young Chris #3

    It would have been dope if he switched in mid-air, the car stopped and he landed in the back seat…

  • illydiva

    It’s not like we haven’t seen him do crazy, “did I just see that” kind of stuff in real life under his own power. I think he gets a pass. I liked it. I give it an 8!

  • http://shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com/ Eboy

    It would have been more dope if a giant mutant hawk flew by and snatched Kobe in mid air and took him to some far away land, never to be seen again. And not Sheldon Williams, either.

  • http://www.slamonline.com Ryan Jones

    I only watch documentaries, illydiva. I’m snobby like that.

  • http://www.slamonline.com Ryan Jones

    Eboy, that may be the first time you’ve ever made me laugh. Intentionally, I mean.

  • http://shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com/ Eboy

    You know, when Michael Jordan dunked on a 40 foot goal in his Air Jordan 11 commerical, I had to suspend disbelief for a moment too. He could have pulled it off.

  • http://shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com/ Eboy

    Glad I finally got a slight chuckle from you, Jones.

  • http://shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com/ Eboy

    So does this kill my theory that Dwight Howard really CAN’T fly through the night sky like Iron Man? All those nights looking up to the north for no reason…..f*ck!

  • http://www.slamonline.com Ryan Jones

    See, that wasn’t funny. Normal service resumed.

  • http://www.friendster.com/sesa Sesa

    That’s the ghettoest talk that I see from Kobe Bryant…. Ever.
    Ryan, LeBron never brought his teammates on his commercial.

  • http://shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com/ Eboy

    And you wonder what’s it like getting through one of your pieces on the almost-never regular.

  • Randy Brown

    I guess it’s not online yet, but there’s a Stephen Jackson version of this ad. Except in his one he jumps through the car’s windshield and bites the face off the driver

  • http://www.ravingblacklunatic.blogspot.com Allenp

    I wonder why Kobe had to become “hood” to jump over a car? Dude is a beast on the court, but in real life he pretty much sucks ass.

  • http://www.truthaboutit.net/ Truth About It Dot Net

    I really can’t believe people are actually debating if this is real or not….ridiculous.

    Kobe is a douche.

  • TradeMarc

    funny….fake but funny

    you know he really wouldnt be stupid enough to do that….hes stupid but not that stupid



    A Jones piece is like a .357 calibre next to your pop gun Gboy….

  • http://www.friendster.com/sesa Sesa

    and you needed a hug

  • Michael

    Only Kobe would get killed for making a commercial.

  • mat smith

    isnt this a bball site? dumb…..

  • johnnyrooks

    I was right kobe does have a 45 vert and it has to be real because the shadows in the backround look at the shadows LOOK AT THE SHADOWS!!! kobe for president!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • http://www.kb24.com Kobe24Bryant

    Whos better than Kobe

  • http://nba.com tina

    How is Kobe the douche when he said it was fake?

  • MagicChicken

    Freeze Frame it at the 34 second spot, and you can see that he’s slightly to the right of the actual car, not directly in it’s path.

  • http://www.yahoo.com Wazup

    The time it should have taken KB24 to jump over a car moving at 13 mph covering a distance of .000568 miles is only required .1575 seconds. KB24 took an average of .978 seconds and barely made it over the car. With a time lapse of over .82 seconds, KB 24 could have jumped over a much faster moving car. Bogus advertisement.

  • http://www.yahoo.com Wazup

    The dimesions were taken from a Aston Martin DB9 2008 model. Taken were four tests of car time and kobe time while distance was length of car.

  • http://www.yahoo.com Wazup

    Caltech class of 05. thatll silence the doubters of intellect

  • will


    VC and MJ could do the same thing jumping over a TRUCK or a hummer. Kobe got no hops that why he is jumping over a convertible. LOL

  • KA

    LOL at Bowen/jax comments, those cracked me up

    mambiatch was funny too

  • http://www.yahoo.com Wazup

    somebody p;ease frickin make a comment about my hypothesis. It took me about 15 minutes to calculate. Bitches

  • gotta catch em all

    this isnt legit cuz you can see his shadow on the side of the car
