Video: Kobe Bryant meets young fan on Ellen show

Sep 28, 2012, 4:00 PM EDT

What is with all the Lakers going on Ellen?

Kobe Bryant was on the daytime talk show (which you watch, admit it) and got to meet a young fan, who won seats to an upcoming Lakers game by beating Kobe in a shootout. Enjoy the one and only time you get to see non-competitive Kobe.

Hat tip to SLAM.

    I bet after the show ended and the cameras were off Kobe took him out back and destroyed him 100-0. No one shows up Kobe.

    that was awesome. all athletes should do more of this stuff in the public eye. that little kid will be talking about this to his grand kids one day. more positive role models and less Lil Wayne and friends.

    The kid looks like he could be Kobe’s son.

    1001 of these cutesy things will not wash away 1 night in Colorado.Those are his true colors as a human being.

      Yeah Paul, Ms. Farber was all broke up as she walked into court, knocked up by the boyfriend she hooked up with right after that tragic ordeal! How much did she get again? And this was after the “glowing” review she got by people who worked with her.

    Typical that the woman is the “bad guy” for people like you. I’m sure she seduced this poor guy…..
    Her past has nothing to do. with the situation at all. Kobe had a wife and 2 kids at home, that’s the type of.pos he is.

    She was paid off to make it go away. Kobe was way in the wrong and you and people like you justify it by vilifying the victim. You sir are pathetic.

      Take it from this guy, who’s never made a mistake in his life, certainly not one the whole world found out about. The temptations a young multi-millionaire professional athlete must avoid would be tough for anyone to handle, but judgmental trolls have no problem making these declarations from their comfy basement chairs at mommy’s house.

      Nobody is saying Bryant didn’t err or didn’t deserve the bad publicity and the negative mark on his character.. Rather, the majority of us are able to forgive and forget and get on with life, unlike someone who seems pathetically obsessed with regurgitating the issue every chance they get.

    Manchester: Pathetic argument. You honestly think he erred ” one time”?
    If you do you’re dumber than I previously thought. He got caught that time, because he went overboard and was a little to overzealous.

    That you can defend a pos like that speaks volumes about you and your morals. You “forgave him”( how precious) because he plays on your favorite team. If this was LeBron, Rondo,Paul, or Durant you’d be vilifying him.
    Any guy who pulls the crap he pulled is garbage in my book and Vanessa should have cleaned him out.
    People like you who defend him make me sick.

      listen, shouldn’t his wife be this mad, not you? you just sound like kobe’s ripped the heart of your favorite team numerous times.

  8. paulhargis53 - Oct 1, 2012 at 8:28 PM

    It’s not about basketball! He’s garbage as a human being and you people kiss his ass.
    You’ll look past anything , as long as its food for your favorite sports teams. It’s pathetic that you treat this parasite asca hero. It’s know wonder this world is in the shape its in. Hero worshipping a pos, forgive them anything….no freaking moral compasd whatsoever.

      Curious: Who are your heroes without sin? Second, is not the moral thing to do forgive people? His wife did?

      I’m not about to say Kobe is perfect, but to take this kind of moral high ground is foolish because everyone, from presidents (and candidates) to preachers to teachers have very public flaws we can discuss that you might suggest means they shouldn’t be role models either.
