The professional basketball player had one run-in with the law in Colorado that stained his reputation only to have him live to slam dunk another day.
Now he is in the headlinesÂ once again. Parents across the country are questioning the cumulative result on their kids of a video buzzing acrossÂ the InternetÂ showing Kobe jumping over a speeding car.
The video is below — you be the judge. Is it real? Or is it a stunt?
Either answer is unacceptable to parental watch-dog groups who are consideringÂ a campaign to have it banned. Kobe does address the camera after leaping over a speeding Aston Martin, “do not try this at home.”
For us at The Wire, that is all the disclaimer we need! Have you watched this man play basketball? After witnessing the video, this writer actually thinks this is a big deal over nothing. I believe Kobe can jump higher than that!
