Here's What Happened When Kobe Played Manu Ginobili For The First Time


When talking about shooting guards, both Kobe Bryant and Manu Ginobili would make anyone's top 10 list.

So when the two faced off against each other, the dialogue was something seriously special. Zach Lowe wrote the story:

In one of Ginobili's first matchups with the Lakers, Kobe Bryant sidled over to Bowen and asked about Ginobili, Bowen recalled: "Tell me about the white boy." Bowen warned Bryant, "Oh, you're gonna see. He's not a white boy, and he's got some stuff."

Turns out, Bowen was right. Ginobili definitely had some stuff.
