It seems that Kobe Bryant is taking his “Black Mamba” nickname a little too seriously. According to Washington Wizards guard Jordan Crawford, Kobe goes full retard during games by hissing when he wants the ball from his teammates.
That’s right, hissing. As in a hiss sound that a snake would make in the wild. And considering how much Kobe has his hands on the ball during the game, he must be hissing his ass off all 48 minutes.
Jordan Crawford explains this bizarre phenomenon further:
When I first played with Kobe—they call him the Black Mamba—but then he was doing like a little snake sound when he wanted the ball. It was crazy. It was crazy. It’s like tsssss, tsssss. Like fishing. Tsssss, tssss.
He do that. Everybody tells you he’s gonna do it before you play him—like, Wait till you hear him do this.’ And then he [does] it, and it’s like, what? He’s really a mamba. It sounds like some kind of snake.
I don’t know if this is bad ass or just weird. It is obvious that this man is on some other shit as he goes into full character during battle. ESPN needs to mic him up so we can witness this for ourselves.
