Kobe Shares Picture Of Kobe Logo Piano

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Over the weekend, Kobe Bryant tweeted out a picture of what appears to be a piano built in the shape of Kobe’s Nike logo

Only…I don’t think this is real. Now, I’m no expert, and I fully expect you guys to correct me in the comments section if I’m wrong, but I’m calling shenanigans here. First of all, the reason the left side of the piano is longer than the right side is because the strings need to be longer to create the lower notes. I suppose you could avoid this by having this piano not actually be an acoustic piano — if it were a synthesizer you could built it however you want and just have the sounds created electronically. Still, the bigger issue is that the keys are incorrect. An octave on a piano has eight whole notes (C through C), with five sharps and flats, which are the black keys. Each octave has two black keys together, and then three black keys together, repeating over and over. And this piano, down on the left end, has some crazy key patterns.

But what do I know? If anyone could actually create a working Kobe Logo-shaped piano, it would probably be Kobe. And after all, I can’t play Beethoven. Kobe, apparently, can.

        IT’S NOT IMPORTANT IF IT’S REAL OR NOT.. Kobe 81 points implies that when you wear Kobe shoes it’s like you’ll be in the rhythm.. it’s like you’re creating the tempo or notes of the game.. KOBE HAS GREAT COMPETITIVENESS AND HIGH BASKETBALL I.Q. THAT SEPARATES HIM AMONG THE GREATS.. I don’t think that this writer understands the big picture.. In 1 on 1 vs Lebron.. Lebron will have no chances of winning.. Lebron is just using all power and not his brain.. Kobe will just beat Lebron easily by just using his great skills and I.Q.. that’s why even M.J. knows that only Kobe can beat him 1 on 1..

        Lebron is not even close to Kobe’s greatness.. Lebron should bare in mind that D.Wade and Rey Allen gave him the championship rings and not him.. Kobe gave the championship rings to Shaq and Gasol, because Shaq and Gasol has their own different teams before they went to L.A. and never won a single championship with it, but only when they have Kobe on their team and that’s the same as MJ with Pippen..

        Then tell me @lbj!.. How your Lebron became the GOAT?!.. Your Lebron is not the GOAT but he’s the JOKE!.. LOL!

    Well, I play the piano, so I can tell you that that machine is no real. Let me explain. There are seven different notes on a piano that repeat many times within the space provided, and are represented by the whites keys. With those seven notes are 5 other notes that are represented by the black keys on the piano. The pattern is like this: white key, black key, white key, black key, white key, white key, black key, white key, black key, white key, black key, white key. For those who didn’t read all of that, I’m basically saying that the pattern of the black keys are two black keys, three black keys, two black keys, three black keys, etc. There are NO EXCEPTIONS to that pattern! In the piano shown by Kobe, you will see that there is at least one place where there is 1 black key (and I’m not talking about the last black key on the very left). Therefore, It’s a cool idea, but not real.

    Kobe plays piano?

  10. Burrito says:

    That could be a killer custom made upright piano, the logo part could just be for looks which would make sense. Kobe could afford to have Steinway or of the high end piano builders make him a ridiculous piano.

    Any excuse to give Kobe Bryant publicity – Nobody that matters cares.

    Totally like kobe: unique, never seen before, and you don’t ever know what is coming.

    Electric piano. Welcome to the 19th century.

    DON’T REALLY MATTER, IT IS WHAT IT IS: AFTER ALL IT’S KOBE BRYANT ONE OF THE ALL TIME GREATS CAN DO WHATEVER HE WANTS: GOT TO BE REAL OR WOULD NOT DO IT.

    Digital Pianos can be virtually any shape or size. But Lang for a non-pianist you were very observant – there is a position (about an octave above the bottom of the instrument) where a black key is missing and the sequence is incorrect. The result there is some non-existent notes. Your comment on string length was fairly accurate, too, though a technician with enough skill might be able to fit strings the length of a baby-grand into that instrument body. Having said all that, playing a piano that looks like an anime superweapon would be awesome, and that’s all that really matters.

    A digital piano can be essentially any shape or size imaginable. A talented enough acoustic technician might be able to stretch strings the length of a baby-grand into that body, also. However, Lang, for a non-pianist you made a very astute observation. There is a place about an octave above the bottom of the instrument where things fall out of sequences (there is a mystery black note surrounded by two mystery white notes, then the sequence continues correctly). That means it’s almost definitely not a real instrument, which is a tragedy, because who wouldn’t want to play a piano that looks like an anime super-weapon?

    Listen on each interview that Kobe has he has great reasoning skills and NO boastfulness.. What did he said during the 2014 All Star when Lebron shows to the people of the world his dumbness answer about the Mount Rushmore question.. Kobe just answered it as simple as “It’s impossible to have a Mt. Rushmore in NBA because there’s a lot of great players out there”.. it’s clear as crystal that Bill Russel deserved to be among the 4 faces of NBA Mt. Rushmore with 11 rings even a college player knows about it.. Maybe Lebron whom the NBA considered the best player doesn’t know that Bill Russel has 11 rings.. LOL! There are questions that shouldn’t be answered over the media.. it’s just because Lebron’s HEAD RIGHT NOW IS AS BIG AS THE HEADS OF THE MOUNT RUSHMORE because of too much exposure and exaggerated appreciation from NBA and media.. HE IS JUST THINKING OF JUST ANSWERING THE QUESTION AND NOT EVEN THINKING ABOUT IT.. it also shows his dumbness and unprofessional act how he went into the media after leaving Cleveland without the knowledge of Cleveland’s Management and that’s no wonder why the media adore him..

    Lebron is not even close to Kobe’s greatness.. Lebron should bare in mind that D.Wade and Rey Allen gave him the championship rings and not him.. Kobe gave the championship rings to Shaq and Gasol, because Shaq and Gasol has their own different teams before they went to L.A. and never won a single championship with it, but only when they have Kobe on their team and that’s the same as MJ with Pippen..

    Whoever did the CG rendering purposely did the weird key pattern on the left side of the keyboard to let everyone know that it’s a fake. When MJ had his cigars in front of the piano he actually never played the piano. So Kobe copies MJ by PRETENDING to play piano.
