Never made public video of Kobe Bryant’s pre-draft workout goes viral

One year ago today, Kobe Bryant, his daughter Gianna, and seven others died after the helicopter they were traveling on crashed in Calabasas, California.

If you search “Kobe Bryant” on the internet today, there are a plethora of fantastic tribute stories that are popping up and I highly suggest you check them out.

But rather than trying to write up my own tribute story, I thought I would share an exclusive video that was released today and has already gone viral.

The video was taken by Rex Kalamian and it was recorded in 1996 while Kobe was taking part in a pre-NBA Draft workout for the Los Angeles Clippers.

Rest in Peace, Kobe, and Gianna.
