By now, we’ve all seen Kobe Bryant’s jacked-up jump over a speeding Aston Martin. Although it was quite a video treat - thanks, Hollywood! - it’s still a dangerous stunt to actually attempt. Even at the start of his own clip, the Lakers star had warned viewers not to try it themselves.
Apparently, Kenny Smith wasn’t listening. The “Inside The NBA” co-host figured if Kobe could coast over a car, why couldn’t he? So, Smith brought along a TNT camera crew, slipped on his styling sneakers, and readied himself for the big leap forward.
How did he do? Check out the video after the jump.
But while Mitsubishi sedans may be good enough for Gathright, such autos are underneath Bryant. If Kobe’s going to get high (in the air, we mean), he’ll need a classier vehicle, like an Aston Martin - a moving Aston Martin.
So, was Kobe able to clear the car? Check out the video, if you dare:
