Someone went into the archives and dug up this crazy footage of a young Kobe Bryant in the Philippines in what looks like 1998 (judging from his t-shirt).

Out on tour and taking part in the adidas Streetball Challenge, Kobe threw down a couple of huge dunks – the first a full extension windmill, and the second one a through the legs off the bounce – both of which he followed up with the cocky swagger he has become so famous for.

In 1998 Kobe would’ve been either 19 or 20 years old.

Then as a bonus clip, we get to see him cross up a defender with a nasty shake before finishing the lay in!
