Mathew Knowles has Kobe busting his ankles out here.
Kobe Bryant is one of the best basketball players of all time and there really is no disputing that. While he may not be THE best, he's still in conversation as being one of the greatest to ever do it. With this in mind, it's a little surprising that the Los Angeles Lakers legend would be bested in a pickup game by the likes of Beyoncé's dad, Mathew Knowles.
Yesterday, Knowles posted a video on Twitter of himself playing Kobe while on the set of Destiny's Child's video shoot for the song "Bug A Boo." In the clip, you see Kobe missing some shots, all while Knowles throws up straight daggers on Kobe's head.
TMZ Sports got to speak to Knowles today about the video and he doubled down on his basketball abilities. He says that if he were given another shot at Kobe, he'd beat him no question.
"I told you I can play some ball! 20 years later, I could still take Kobe to the hoop!" Knowles said. "Kobe, I just want to let you know bruh, I think you are one of the greatest -- if not the greatest basketball player ever. It was a privilege to kick your ass and I'll do it again."
If I were Kobe, I'd be on my way to Knowles' house ready to hoop. You can't let that man disrespect you like that. Also, we really want to see this happen.
