Will Kobe Bryant become the greatest Skateboarder of all time?

For the last few days, Kobe Bryant’s put his first toe into the Twittersphere by taking over the Nike Basketball Twitter account @nikebasketball. It’s been great to get a close & personal insight into one of the greatest players to ever play the game…

Especially today, as Kobe tweeted this picture of him & his daughter Natalia…


Now this got me thinking…

Kobe Bryant said he’s an “amateur at best” at skateboarding. Well, as we all know, Kobe Bryant doesn’t stop doing anything until he is the best at what he’s doing. With Kobe saying that he’s going to retire from Basketball in 2014, could skateboarding be his next endeavor?

If this is the case, here are some suggestions for Kobe so that he can become the G.O.A.T in his new-found love.

First things first… Obviously, the mecca of professional skateboarding is the X-Games. If Kobe wants to “be the man, he has to beat the man” by taking on Shaun White in a mono-et-mono battle on the Vert.


Secondly, he has to do something that no-one has ever attempted… Kobe, get your ass down to Sydney & attempt to grind your way across the Sydney Harbour Bridge! They said it can’t be done & that it defies physics… But so do some of the moves that you have done in your 17 year NBA career.


Possibly the most famous skateboard stunt ever attempted was when Bart Simpson attempted to jump over Springfield Gorge, only to be stopped by his father Homer who accidentally attempted the jump himself… Homer failed, so Kobe could get one-up on America’s favourite family by becoming the first person to successfully jump over the famous Springfield landmark.


Finally… We’ve never had it on the basketball court & with time running out it’s looking less likely. Kobe v LeBron James for the NBA Championship. Well, if it doesn’t happen on the court, why not off the court? Kobe & LeBron could use both of their new found hobbies to stage the greatest race of all time. Kobe on his skateboard v LeBron on his bike… Whilst a bike is faster than a skateboard, don’t doubt The Black Mamba’s abilities to take this one out…


There are just a few options for Kobe…The skating world is now at his fingertips. There are a myriad of other ways that Kobe can stamp his dominance on one of the worlds fastest growing sports.

Rest assured, you can put money on the fact that this won’t be the last you hear of Kobe Bryant – Skater Boy.
