Kobe Bryant Is “The Black Mamba” (Video Directed By Robert Rodriguez)

Most believe that Kobe Bryant’s MVP performance at the 2011 NBA All-Star Game last night was influenced by his desire to put on a show in front of the hometown crowd at the Staple Center.  That seems like the logical explanation, but what if there was something else causing Kobe to put forth such a dominating performance?

Perhaps this was all just part of the plan between he and film producer Robert Rodriguez.  Perhaps the two of them figured the best way to promote their newly released short film, which stars Kobe Bryant as “The Black Mamba,” was for Kobe to gain the spotlight during this highly anticipated game in Los Angeles.

Whatever the case may be, Kobe certainly has our attention now.  Here is a look at Kobe Bryant as “The Black Mamba”;  a Nike Basketball Production which also features appearances by Danny Trejo, Bruce Willis and Kanye West.  Enjoy!
