Kobe Bryant’s post-career image rehabilitation tour continues. This time, it’s with WNBA star Candace Parker.
Bryant has already tried to rebrand himself as a “storyteller” which is a weird thing people my age do when they want to confuse their parents about whether or not they have a paying job. Kobe has also, shockingly, won an Oscar for producing a commercial about himself. It’s going well for Bryant, as defenders and fans continue to be selective in their memory of the last two decades.
Now Kobe is joining the ranks — along with Hakeem Olajuwon and Tracy McGrady — of former All-Time NBAers giving lessons to younger generations during the offseason.
Parker, 32, already has plenty of sway to her name but recently got a little lesson on footwork from Bryant.
That’s pretty solid work. And, hey, if Kobe doesn’t teach other players Michael Jordan’s moves, who will?
I expect we will see more videos of this ilk in the years to come.
