Well here is my 1st vid from my personal collection that i will be sharing with u all. The 1st of many let me tell u. I hope enjoy it and i hope itt akes u back when it was all good in the days of hip-hop's past.
Now to set the backdrop on this, this is when Kobe 1st got drafted in the summer of 1996. My 1st impressions of him back then (when i was in the 9th grade) was that he was a great athlete but could he play in the NBA? He had alot of hype plus not to mention some dope Adidas commercials. So i just was as curious as everybody else to see how well he can do, and as u can see he dissapoint one bit. But let me remind u in the beginning it wasnt all gravy for him, in his 1st year he barely played. He did win the Dunk Contest and shoulda won the Rookie Game MVP but that was it.
But as u watch this vid u can see his competitive fire and passion for the game was strong early on and it was just a matter of time before he let world know it. I recorded this during the summer of '98 if im not mistaken, cause during the summer's of '98 & '99 BET used to show old episodes of Rap City from like '94-'96 in its usual time slot. Im just mad i didnt record more, but im on the hunt for them now. Ok, well i hope u enjoy this and more will be comin soon! ONE!
