Kobe Bryant just got the first endorsement for the political career we’re not sure he even wants yet … U.S. Congressman Peter King says Kobe’s got everything it takes to be an all-star politician.
Magic Johnson seemed to hint that Kobe’s post-NBA calling was politics during a speech at the Mamba’s jersey retirement ceremony, when he said Bryant had the ability to bring all people together.
We saw King — who represents New York’s 2nd district — in D.C. and asked for an expert’s opinion on the honorable Kobe Bryant from California, and here’s the thing … King seemed down with it.
BTW — King uses all kinds of weird hoops analogies to give Kobe props, but the main takeaway is, he’s on board
