Over the years, we’ve become accustomed to seeing Kobe Bryant’s nerves of steel. From last minute game-winners to having a ball faked in his face, the Black Mamba has proven to us that nothing can put him off his game.
A few years back, Bryant proved that his ability to not react to things that would make other flinch or jump out of their skin is in effect even when he’s not on the court.
While walking through the arena in Milwaukee before a game against the Bucks, the team’s mascot jumped out at the five-time NBA champion in an attempt to scare him in front of the cameras.
However, the mascot failed as Bryant was completely unfazed by the whole thing and just kept on walking.
Now, a GIF of the “incident” has been doing the rounds on Twitter recently, and it seemingly made it’s way to Bryant today.
Firstly, here’s the GIF:
And here’s Bryant’s reaction:
This is why Twitter is so awesome.
