Kobe Bryant went out in a blaze of glory, scoring 60-points in his final game wearing Laker purple and gold last season. Over his long 20-year career, we’ve seen Bryant show every emotion — from laughter to absolute disgust — on and off the court. Well, even though he’s retired now, the Black Mamba will still stare you down like it’s game 7 of the NBA Finals. Don’t believe me? Watch this video and find out the hard way — or better yet, try it.
A new video acquired by The Hoops Doctors on YouTube, shows Kobe and his family eating at what appears to be a Ruby’s Diner, while a person sitting across from their table starts to film them in a not-so-secret manner.
As the camera beings to roll, Kobe and company can be seen just minding their own business. But his sudden awareness of the rogue cameraman makes Kobe go into a full-fledged G.O.A.T-Black Mamba-5-time NBA Champion-Death Stare. It’s an icy glare that will probably haunt the person filming for the rest of their life. What a brave soul.
Here’s a look at the best Kobe reactions, since the recently filmed stare down was a little lo-res.
Probably looked a little like this to the person recording.
Doesn’t even flinch.
What did you just say?
Thanks for everything Kobe Bean, you’re still the greatest Laker of all time.
