1996 NBA Draft Throwback feat. Kobe Bryant

Kobe and Ronaldinho in Brazil, for his “Black Mamba Tour”.
From Nike:

The Black Mamba Tour included stops in São Paulo, Salvador and Rio de Janeiro. In São Paulo, Bryant stopped traffic and greeted lines of fans outside the opening of Nike’s exclusive “Arena Selecao” store designed to celebrate Brasilian football. During the tour Bryant spent time with football icons Ronaldo, Neymar and Ronaldinho, and with the Brasilian football team fresh off their victory over Italy in South America’s premier football tournament.

Michael was more likely to break through his attackers with power and strength, while Kobe often tries to finesse his way through mass pileups. Michael was stronger, with bigger shoulders and a sturdier frame. He also had large hands that allowed him to control the ball better and make subtle fakes. Jordan was also more naturally inclined to let the game come to him and not overplay his hand, whereas Kobe tends to force the action, especially when the game isn’t going his way. When his shot is off, Kobe will pound away relentlessly until his luck turns. Michael, on the other hand, would shift his attention to defense or passing or setting screens to help the team win the game
— Phil Jackson points out the differences, as he sees it, between Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant in an excerpt from his forthcoming book Eleven Rings: The Soul of Success.

The NBA Playoffs is a Game of Thrones

…and Kobe Bryant is Tywin Lannister

"Sir Mike D’Antoni of House D’Antoni as a reward for your accomplishment of barely getting us into the playoffs we will find you accommodations suited to your name – I hear Mike Brown’s house is on the market. And when the time is right you will be given a position fit for your talents, Utah maybe. And I would let myself be consumed by MAGGOTS before mocking the Laker name by making you heir to Sir Philip’s legacy."

xoxo,

Mamba
