R.I.P Kobe- Remember The Time He Dunked Over A Pool of Snakes
Since the death of the Black Mamba, everyone is bringing up some of their favorite memories of the NBA legend. Here's one of mine. SOme say this stunt was staged, while others swear it's real but let's be honest- doesn't matter. It's another great moment and a fond memory of the NBA icon. Nike teamed up with the dudes from Jackass to shoot a promo for his Kobe Bryant's new shoe for the brand "about 13 or 14 years ago" according to Johnny Knoxville. Knoxville posted the clip on his Instagram on Monday morning, sharing a memory he and the Jackass crew has with the basketball phenomenon.
In the clip, there is an adult-sized inflatable pool filled with water and snakes. The clip begins with Jackass cast members Chris Pontius, Wee Man, and Danger Ehren all taking their turns trying to clear the pool with no luck. Pontius takes it a step farther by swimming around in the pool and enjoying his time with his slithery friends. Finally, you see Kobe take his moment to clear the pool and dunk into a basketball hoop. Look, we understand the video is most likely fake, but that's really not the point. It's just a great memory of someone we lost way too soon.
