8-Year Old Kobe Bryant Watches His Dad, Joe “Jellybean” Bryant Warm Up [Video]

Kobe Bryant a Sassoferrato from Luigi Garofoli on Vimeo

We’ve all heard the story of Kobe Bryant spending part of his youth in Italy where his dad played overseas. Check out this rare video of an 8 year old mini mamba sitting courtside watching his dad warm-up.

I guess we can put an end to the myth that Kobe chews his gum like Jordan to affect his game. Looks like that skill was a long time in the making. :giggles:
