The TMZ paps happened to catch one Kobe Bryant coming out of A.O.C. restaurant here in LA on 3rd street and asked him a couple of questions.
Kobe has long been a supporter of soccer and women’s soccer, giving the game exposure to an entire new audience, having grown up in Italy and falling in love with the game as a child. As most things work, you’d figure a love for something that a father has, would extend to the kids, and apparently thats exactly what is going on.
Kobe and crew were all over the Women’s World Cup and and by the looks of things, they may have a budding soccer star in the fam.
Just as an fyi, and if you are on these pages you’ve seen him here before, but Kobe isn’t one of these bandwagon stars that are just getting in to soccer. His signature sneakers encompass elements from soccer boots, most noticeably that fact that Kobe was the first basketball player in a long time to popularize wearing low top sneakers again while playing. For a long time, it was only he and Steve Nash who wore a low cut.
He also done clinics in South America and played pick up soccer games and mingled and built with a lot of soccer royalty. Kobe is a true soccer dude and we love it. That kind of exposure to the game, from the cool kids and cool celebrities is part of the growth of the game in America, and a driver of the culture, that we always talk about.
