Check out the awesome footage of a young Kobe Bryant here.
Rare footage has been uncovered by Lakersnation.com of Kobe Bryant as a high school basketballer playing for Lower Merion.
The footage is from Kobe’s junior year when he bounced back from a poor first half performance against Norristown to score an impressive 29 points in the second half to lead his team to a win.
During his four years at Lower Merion, Kobe was considered one of the best high school players in the country.
Although he showed promise in his first two years, it wasn’t until his junior year in 1995 that he started to come into his own, where he averaged 31.1 points, 10.4 rebounds and 5.4 assists per game.
