  1. Kobe towering people at only 6”6. That’s crazy. In basketball that’s averages height, but giant in real life. But Kobe just chilling saying you know I got 5 rings right?

  2. I lowkey wanted kobe to just destroy them lol. I love watching pro athletes take to normal people

  3. NCAA champ cant even hit an uncontested mid range shot trying or not you should be able to hit that with your eyes closed
