When Julius Randle was drafted by the LA Lakers, Randle posted a pic of himself as a kid wearing a Kobe Bryant jersey.  On yesterday’s episode of The Starters, the crew gave Kobe’s new teammate a “How Much Do You Know About Kobe Bryant” Quiz.

Before watching the video, let’s see if you can answer these (pretty easy) questions.

  1. Who was Kobe traded for on Draft Night?
  2. What numbers has Kobe worn during his pro career?
  3. Who coached the Raptors for Kobe’s 81 point game in 2006? (who wrote this unfair question?)
  4. Which year did Kobe win the Dunk Contest?
  5. Which college did Kobe attend?
  6. Who did Kobe take to his High School Prom?
  7. What is Kobe named after?
  8. What is Kobe’s Dad’s nickname?
  9. How many times has Kobe won All-Star Game MVP?
  10. Which supermodel sang the chorus in Kobe’s song “K.O.B.E”

Considering Randle’s age, I think he did a great job but for you Kobe fanatics, here’s my advanced follow-up questions to the Starters’s questions.

  1. What was the original trade offer for Kobe? (hint: AP)
  2. Why did Kobe wear #8?  (hint: ADIDAS ABCD Camp)
  3. What was Kobe’s previous scoring high before the 81 in 2006 (hint: Dallas also in 2006)
  4. Name 2 players that did better than Kobe in the McDonalds HS Dunk Contest (hint: LE & CB)
  5. Which college was Kobe going to attend if he didn’t go to the NBA (hint: VC)
  6. Who did Tim Thomas attempt to meet after Kobe took Brandy to prom (hint: Fresh Prince)
  7. Kobe is the nephew of what former NBA player (hint: Chubby)
  8. What is the origin of the Black Mamba nickname (hint: Tarantino)
  9. Kobe was the youngest All-Star ever in 98. How old was he (hint: 1 more than the amount of points he scored)
  10. Kobe made his rapping debut on what R&B singers song (hint: Back at One)

Some more Bonus questions

  1. Which companies dropped Kobe after the Colorado incident?
  2. What year was it when Kobe wanted to be traded (and almost became a Clipper or supposedly a Mav)?
  3. What Saturday morning TV show did Kobe appear on in 1997?
  4. Kobe met Vanessa Bryant on the set of what music video?
  5. What is Kobe’s record for most field goal attempts in a game (hint: it’s a $hitload and was not from the 81 point game)
