    Kobe is so happy to be done with basketball and it makes me happy that he is succeeding outside of the NBA. That is the face of a man who left it all on the court and is happy with his career. The greatest Laker of all time and thatโ€™s good enough for a Southern California native born and raised! All of you irrelevant states and cities can love Jordan and Lebron all you want, Kobeโ€™s home is in Southern California!

    The problem with black culture is that they push so hard sports. 7days a week basketball especially if you're a girl it's worthless.
    This is why Asians are being forced out of Harvard because of their emphasis on education.
    Basketball doesn't matter education does.

      Forced out of Harvard, they make up 20% of the incoming class? Also the girls Kobe coaches are a majority white so I don't think your comment belongs with this video.

    Kobe has always lacked originality. He modelled his game after Michael Jordan, he stole his Black Mamba nickname from Quentin Tarintino's Kill Bill movies, and now he's stealing JK Rowling's wizarding world.
