While it may not be in a real game just yet, it sure is great to see Kobe Bryant back on the basketball court.

In a World Cup promotional commercial for Panini, which also features Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck, Bryant can be seen making moves on the court in the current day.

Then, every so often, a child resembling Bryant’s likeness is shown playing soccer and serves as a “flashback” to the Black Mamba’s sporting roots.

The entertaining commercial ends with both Bryant and Luck facing up in the middle of a soccer field and cuts to black as the two charge toward each other.

If you’re into soccer and you’re looking forward to the World Cup, this should get you hyped. And if you’re not? Just enjoy the sight of Kobe Bryant manoeuvring around the basketball court once again.
