PHOTOS: Kobe Bryant Olympic Tribute Statue In China

In Taiwan, there are the Kobe Bryant “Achilles” statue as well as the Jeremy Lin statue in the same exhibit as part of a basketball exhibition.

During his most recent trip to Shanghai, two identical statues were also unveiled and placed outside of Kobe’s “House of Mamba.”

The two identical statues depict Kobe Bryant in one of his iconic dunks in the 2008 Olympics. Accordingly, the statues display Kobe’s number 10 Olympic jersey. Kobe has said he won’t be participating in the next Olympics, and these two recently unveiled sculptures are a fitting tribute to his Olympic career.

In contrast to the “Achilles” statue which only measures at 68 x 50 x 50 cm, both statues are life-size and hang by suspension chords guarding the entrance to Bryant’s house.

Kobe’s popularity overseas has only increased with time and that can only continue. While in China, the five-time champion promised the crowd another visit next year.

    I guess when your nation has a history of genocide than rape doesn’t seem so bad.

    • Jim213

      • Zach

        Okay, that’s pretty awesome, thumbs up!

    • Zach My Dick

      yes, especially if “rape” means agreeing to sex then later denying the consent because it means instant cash. It also helps if the suspect is a known celebrity and rich as hell. But of course, I’m just speaking by opinion and not facts.

    • Badeng

      and I assume there is a statue being built in your honor for the exemplary work you have done in your field of knowledge?

      • Zach

        Nah, but if there was one it wouldn’t be built out of bricks, like the one they’re planning for Kobe outside of Staples. They’re having trouble finding enough bricks though…

        • Jess Navarro

          actually, there is a plan to built one for you but they couldn’t find enough sh*t in the world to match your personality.

  • vdogg

    so hilarious how people are still hung up on some trumped up rape charge from more than a decade ago in which the “victim”, if you can call her that, was seen and heard bragging about having slept with kobe at a party just days after the incident. rape is a very personal, traumatic thing. no legitimate rape victim is going to boast about the act. a gold-digging star-fu**er probably would, however.

    • Zach

      Just let it go, that was a long time ago. Jeez, give Kobe a break.

      • vdogg

        you really can’t stop responding to me, can you? i thought you had a job or something…? what happened? let me guess — they replaced you with an intern from the school for the blind? tough break. but keep your head up. a buddy of mine owns a restaurant and they’re looking for someone to scrape gum off the bottom of the tables. i’ll put in a word for ya. keep those fingers crossed!

        • Zach

          Thanks, a reference from a Kobe rape victim will come in handy. Oh wait, YOU consented, never mind.

          • vdogg

            go to know that your pathetic excuse for a sense of humor is holding steady at its usual 5th grade clip. what, no ‘your mom’ jokes? she’ll be so disappointed.

          • Zach

            5th grade and you can still comprehend it? You’re getting smarter apparently!

          • vdogg

            yes, the gay sex jokes are so difficult to get …. such an elevated understanding is required. keep telling yourself that. LOL.

  • The fan

    KOBE SHOW BOAT TIME WE WANT Championship Parade in So Cal and we can’t wait to break hearts of all you haters out there talk about Kobe being done.Time for some motor boating then some show boating. THAT’S WHAT Dr Buss should Al of us one love.

  • The fan

    Keep talk all that smack about A Champion that had to deal with his family and wife.Because sometime all the facts don’t come out all people hear is what they want.So stay cool Kobe and focused on your dreams please Champion everywhere don’t listen to fools that can’t live like a Champion because they can’t see them self like that.Talk is cheap just ask Barkley.Charles is so mad at Shaw and Smith on TNT.Becauae there both champions and have more than one ring and he hates it so do all the Lower that talk smack there just sad that there losers.

    For the statue outside Staples, do we want dunk Kobe or lay-up Kobe?

    Vote now!

    • Tina Moran

      oh wow! so hard to choose one. And how about that iconic fade away shot?! Or that impossible backboard shot? Or the free throw shot after the injury? Too many to choose from.
