Recently, some footage has surfaced of Kobe playing in a Gym Rat Midnight Madness High School Showcase in 1995. The video says 1994, but that year is incorrect.
Keep in mind in 1995 Kobe Bryant was just 17 years old, and the and one reverse layup he completes in the first 10 seconds of the video is quite the difficult feat to accomplish at such an age. The video later shows Kobe throwing down a between the legs dunk that makes the crowd go wild, just like they do nowadays.
This is a cool find and not something you’ll see every day. So check it out and show it off to your friends, bragging about how you were the first one to find it. Also, note Kobe’s jersey number, look familiar?
