Kobe Bryant is currently touring China with Nike and he is partaking in various events around the nation. From basketball clinics to charity games, Kobe Bryant is making every moment count during his visit to China.
In the Sprite China 2nd Annual Charity Basketball game, Bryant put on a show for the fans in attendance with his amazing second half play. Bryant wrote about the game on his Facebook page and he detailed his incredible scoring outburst.
I didn’t want to disappoint them or the fans that had paid their hard earned money for a show so I took the challenge of really using the second half as a training session for my stamina. I ran and ran and ran. I wound up scoring 68 in the 2nd and we won.
The game was comprised of two halves which were 15 minutes long, and Bryant did not play in the first half. So the Los Angeles Lakers star tuned into his earlier days and went on an offensive onslaught. In just 15 minutes of play, Kobe put in 68 points and impressed all of the fans watching the game.
Although none of the opponents were close to professional basketball players, Bryant wanted to put on a show for the fans. Bryant is a beloved figure in China and this game was an opportunity for him to interact with his followers.
Kobe Bryant has been around basketball this entire summer, first with the USA Olympic Team and now in China with Nike. Bryant will have a little time for rest, and then he will have to get back on the court for the start of training camp.
