With Kobe Bryant surpassing Michael Jordan on the NBA’s all-time scoring list Sunday, which moved him into third place behind Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Karl Malone, we, at BlackAthlete.net, had to re-publish this dope poem in honor of the Black Mamba,  one of the greatest basketball players ever to lace up a pair of high tops — Kobe Bryant.

The Most Hated

The Most Motivated

He’s Jordan Updatedkobe2

I know, it’s been Debated

But, he was born with Killer Instinct

And I don’t care, what you think

Nobody is better than Kobe

If there is, then show me

Cause I am about to SET IT OFF

So, let’s get ready for the Playoffs

 

And I am sorry, Kevin Durant

But it’s like comparing a Giant to an Ant

And I can’t lie

I love this guy

Cause he is the Last Samurai

With a Jujitsu Jumper

Same game; Different number

So don’t HATE number 8

Because he is still great

 

And I still want to see morekobe4

Can I get an encore?

Now, it’s 24

And I still get chills when he walks on the floor

 

Cause he attacks the rim like a Viper

A.K.A, the L.A.Sniper

Clutch Shooter; Poor Loser

No need for College Recruiters

Because he went from High School

Straight to the Pros

And we all know

 

KOBE6There ain’t No need for Passin’

Because he is an Assassin

A Big Game Gunslinger

With Five Rings and Nine Fingers

And he is still number One

Because I have seen him drop 81

Against the Raptors

Sorry, Philly Haters

He is a Big-Shot Maker

Future Hall Fame Player

The Greatest Laker

And I must confess,

He is the Best in the “WEST”

And Phil Jackson, you can’t teach GREATEST

So, please forgive me,

I’m simply stating the FACTS

But he did it without SHAQkobe9

Besides, The Black Mamba is BACK!!!

His dunks are still Acrobatic

This is Supreme Mathematics

He is better than Magic

Greater than Kareem

He is a One-Man Team

And he’s WORTHY

Of all the Praise

Ever since he graduated from the 12th grade

Because he is smooth as silk

With a jumper sweeter than Jamal Wilkes

And, even New York’s Spike Lee

Knows KOBE

Got’s Game

Just watch the way he glides down the lane

And listen to the way the crowd screams his name

And I am not talking about LeBron James

kobSo, check him out as he dribbles between his legs

Along the baseline

Watch his Hang time

Now press rewind

Because, the more you press rewind

The more you will find

Kobe Bryant

The “Greatest of All Times”KOBE5
