    Damn this video makes me feel old. It's from my childhood and it looks like it was filmed with a potato.

    That's embarrassing didn't even see the video from earlier.

    Look how freaking skilled he was at that age. That's incredible.

    Probably the most skilled 17 year old ever. Already in attack mode, and they did everything they could to stop him. He wasn't having it. Cool to see a young DFish slamming too lol

    I hope Borri is getting his Kobe fix with this thread. Hey .... say Hi once in awhile now that you've found the old crew.

    Kobe at the 5:07 mark on that video is how I remember his youthful years. Long, fluid, yet aggressive.

    My Mamba collection.

    My favorite has to be the blue throwback. Man those jerseys are sick. Wish we'd bring them back. I like them even more than the 80's throwbacks. Haven't worn them since Kobe/Shaq's final season together I believe.

    I'll probably forever regret not seeing him live. Now I'll never get that chance unless it's to sign an autograph, which I'll probably never get a chance to get either. That's a void that will never be filled.

    Sorry to hear that.

    Nobody put on a show like Kobe.

    I just reminsince about all those Lakers/Spurs games in San Antonio all the classic finishes, all the incredible scoring eruptions by Kobe as well as clutch shots, the MVP chants and just being on the edge of my seat.

    Just something I'll always cherish.

    Not sure if this was posted on here. Kenyon Martin had a "The 5 Guys Everybody Hated Playing Against" on The Players' Tribune about 3 months ago. Kobe was on that list.

    https://www.theplayerstribune.com/kenyon-martin-the-5-players-everyone-hated-playing-against

    Others on the list: Reggie Evans, Ron Artest, Kevin Garnett, and Jerry Sloan
