Kobe Plays One-on-One in China (link to video)

Kobe was out promoting his new shoes in China.

More importantly, we Laker fans finally get to see Kobe Bryant play a bit on the basketball court.  Mitch Kupchak stated in a recent interview with Colin Cowherd that he sees Kobe Bryant working out in the practice gym.  We haven’t seen Kobe Bryant play any basketball for months.

AOL Sports provided coverage of Kobe Bryant in Shanghai promoting Nike, but also playing against a few basketball players in spirited competition.

Kobe looks great out there on the basketball floor. Granted, he’s not going at 100% NBA speed, but he looks so confident, fluid, and quick with his pivot work.  He is moving his feet well and while he’s out there having fun, Laker fans can feel some relief about how Bryant looks athletically.  Footwork is everything to Kobe Bryant’s game, and it looks all there.

It’s nice to see him out with the basketball fans.

It’s nicer to see him out on the basketball court moving well.
