Kobe Bryant Plays Beethoven’s “Moonlight Sonata” on Piano (Video)
Kobe Bryant and the Lakers paid a visit to Miami this past weekend to take in the sights and get whupped by LeBron James and the Heat.
Okay, fine. It wasn’t that bad. The Heat only won by ten, 107-97, and Kobe contributed a solid 28 points. It’s just that the Heat had LeBron score 32 and Dwyane Wade throw in another 30, so L.A. was just a bit outmatched.
However, while the reigning NBA MVP and his pals in South Beach may reign supreme on the court, Kobe definitely has them beat when it comes to musical ability.
You see, while LeBron and D-Wade clearly don’t seem to have any musical talent whatsoever, Kobe is actually a decent piano player. And we know this because, after arriving in Miami late Friday night (or early Saturday morning, depending on your perspective), Kobe decided to sit down at the hotel piano and tickle the ivories for a bit.
His composition of choice? Beethoven’s Piano Sonata No. 14 in C-sharp minor “Quasi una fantasia,” better known as the Moonlight Sonata.
Oh, and of course, Kobe’s teammate Darius Morris was there to film and upload a short clip to YouTube. So take a look:
Yep, Kobe is a real renaissance man. I guess we will have to add him to our list of notable athlete musicians.
