5 plays you may not have heard of
The tragic accident in which Kobe died showed how much esteem he enjoyed, not only in basketball or sports circles but really everyone who even once saw him in action during NBA meetings or championship events.
Served as a model of work, dedication and passion for young athletes, he was always smiling, not only among his teammates, but also the opponent's respect due to the skills he had above average.
We could write here for hours about his entrances to the basket ended with spectacular dunks, shootings and grudge in defense but this has already done a lot of portals shortly after the news of his dramatic departure. We decided to put together five basketball games, which until now you may not have heard and are worth noting. Here they are:
Although he devoted his entire sports career to appearances in the Los Angeles Lakers, he was not chosen by them in a draft. At number 13, Charlotte Hornets snatched him out to exchange for a week after Vlade Divaca. I wonder if they regret today?
No. 8 / No. 24
Although he spent his entire club career playing for "lake boaters", he performed in the Los Angeles Lakers under two numbers: starting with 8 and ending with 24.
ADIDAS / NIKE
Just as he was loyal to the team from California, just like the other jersey numbers he was changing in his choices. Initially, he played football and played in the commercials of the German giant to later swap them for models signed with a swoosh.
Not only did Kobe handle the ball, but also behind the microphone. Although he had no problem finishing any, even the most difficult action, his rap album, however, never saw the light of day. Nevertheless, he left behind a musical legacy of several numbers.
