Matt Barnes Shares Kobe Story About Playing 2-On-2 With Some Little Teenagers At Camp

This story sounds on par with the competitor known as Kobe Bryant. Matt Barnes shared a classic story of Mamba not taking it easy on some teenagers in a game of two-on-two at a summer camp...
quote:

“I remember he treated every basketball situation like it was a real game, whether it was the All-Star Game or not."

“But I remember he invited me up to his camp in Santa Barbara. He used to hold a camp, when Mike stopped doing his camp… and I remember I was just coming off a knee surgery that season. I came back at the end of the playoffs. We got swept by Dallas, but my knee was still a little fricked up."

“So I’m thinking I’m just going up there to talk and hang out."

"..we’re out there playing, I think, two-on-two with some teenage kids, and bro, when I tell you Kobe was playing harder than shite.

Blocking shots, dunking, made one kid fall, and I’m like, ‘Damn, Kobe, these are fricking kids.’

And he’s like, ‘So?’"

“I was like, ‘Sheeeeitt.’ So it doesn’t surprise me, it doesn’t surprise me that he took that ’98 All-Star Game, his first game, like it was Game 7 of the Finals.

Kobe was so much fun to watch. The NBA will never be the same.

Can you imagine Kobe calling up other all stars to make a super team so he can walk to a Championship? Me either.
