Jordan Clarkson does a pretty good Kobe Bryant impression

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — One of the cooler things about being on a team with a legendary basketball player is that not only do you get to see that teammate do work alongside you during games, but during practices you get to go up against that person. In the video clip below, we see Lakers guard Jordan Clarkson on the court, doing his best Kobe Bryant, from the step-back to the spin move to the follow-through on the shot. Not bad, young Clarkson, not bad…


  1. coach T says:

    Kobe does it way smoother ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. Lakersfan4life says:

    Kobe does it against 2 or 3 defenders in his face and he makes it.

  3. Athanasia Columbus says:

    ONLY Kobe can do a Kobe move really well!!

  5. purpngold says:

    Nice! But there will never be another Kobe. Kobe is one in a billion.

  6. Jaden says:

    Looks nothing like kobe

  7. Joe says:

    All of Kobe’s moves are Jordan moves, true story.

  8. isaaac says:

    yall incredibly dumb and take the kobe does i better thing to seriously relax and take a break

  9. Rockets 2016 NBA Champs says:

    He traveled, he switched pivots on the fade….that’s definitely a KOBE move.

  10. Samo says:

    Travelling ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. LR says:

    KB doesn’t do that ugly step back before releasing the ball – aweful kobe impression

  12. Donkin says:

    Yes, he did travel and did a step back which Kobe doesn’t do

  13. noyb says:

    A great impression by JC of Kobe doing his best MJ impression.

  14. DLemar says:

    Uhhhh! I love you JC, but you just traveled like twice

  15. yalldumb says:

    He didn’t travel at all

  16. Ramesh pandya says:

    Nice piece of encouragement to upcoming body.

  17. Narf says:

    Nice travel.

  18. RBT says:

    In taking the shot, he first lifted his left foot, which was his pivot foot, so it was a traveling violation.

  19. Karvin says:

    Wow. It’s just a guy goofing off in practice, but I guess if the word “Kobe” is uttered, people get real serious in the comments section.

    For what it’s worth, I used to hate Kobe, but now that he’s older and more mature, he’s growing on me.

    His fans have some work to do, however.

  20. MJ says:

    Travel. One of the things NBA should fix as soon as possible. This is getting out of control. Players will start to practice illegal moves like that? Come on!

  21. enzjulliem says:

    Yeh , Only Kobe can do Michael’s moves …

  22. sarca asm says:

    only kobe can do all those MJ moves, what a unique guy.

  23. leovirburato says:

    He traveled twice by changing his pivot foot twice. But then again, this is just practice show. There’s nothing to freak out. Really.
