Found this video of rare footage of the Los Angeles Lakers and future Hall of Famer Kobe Bryant on youtube. The video highlights Kobe’s championship senior season while playing for Lower Merion High School in Pennsylvania, right before Bryant declared for the NBA draft in 1996. The rest, as you know, is history (and still being wwritten):
You can see flashes of Kobe’s skill even back then. Goes to show, you can’t teach greatness. You’re either born with it or you’re not. Enjoy.
