    For God’s sake. JUst because he spoke 2 chinese words, NI HAO(HELLO) and XE XE(THANK YOU) doesn’t mean he is fluent in that language.

  2. Willing Enders Reply

    The Chinese was only one word

  3. Willing Enders Reply

    Anybody can say that

  4. George Fares Reply

    Only his Italian was fluent, spoke some Spanish, and couple of words in Chinese

    The United States has stifled African Americans. Kobe Bryant grew up in Italy away from the U.S.

      They don’t live in the civil rights era. They stifle themselves. Especially with the crap they listen to these days…

    If Kobe was speaking Spanish I would mistake him for being Dominican.

    He only spoke one word in Chinese but spoke conversationally in Spanish and Italian

    If you know one Romance language you can more easily learn another.

    Kobe proved he truly is fluent in foreign languages. Paging Melania Trump. You’d think at some point our next to non-existent FLOTUS that rarely appears except on and off Air Force 1–and then always hiding behind big, dark, sunglasses—trying desperately to fake her way to appear like Jackie Kennedy—alongside our non-existent and totally worthless POS ‘president’. That couple and their entire family are corrupt, greedy, grifters, that all lie 24/7, and are always proving to be useless and more damaging to our country than any other family in the White House. So even from this three minute segment of an interview Kobe did, he epitomizes class on and off the court.

  28. Malikah Divine Reply

    Awwww wow!! That was absolutely beautiful

  29. Caramel Tigress Reply

    💔love kobe

  30. Cedric Ro. Reply

    A fitting example of his greatness on and off the court. Learning another language in order to communicate effectively with other cultures shows the level of love and respect for persons from all walks of life.

  31. Howie Grossman Reply

    Beautiful 👌🏻👍👌🏻👍👌🏻😘😘😘

  32. Sefa Doe Reply

    Every Virgo that I met in this world are super smart.so it’s no surprise that Kobe Bryant is a Virgo and he’s super smart. The mind of a Virgo is very powerful. I’m a cancer that pay attention to the tiny details.

  33. Arthur Hogan Reply

    I am blown away by this, I knew this cat could speak Italian, then learn after his death he spoke at least three other foreign languages as well ,including Chinese, or Mandarin is it? ‘Freaked out, man. He even looked Italian while speaking ,answering questions. WOW!!

  34. erown aquino Reply

    Kobe also speak tagalog

  35. Arthur Hogan Reply

    I’m watching this again, and I’m convinced that this guy had the mental capacity of a cosmogonist; a Stephen King even: From what other commenters have said here, it is extremely hard to learn these languages, even just speaking them correctly, nuances and all. I’m laughing while watching him speak Italian, stroking his chin ( and s..t) Street vernacular , alla brotha’s. You know what I’m saying. Its almost comical like watching a movie. Kobe was a Renasance man. Too humble for most to know how brilliant he was. What a loss.

    Dopo che Kobe ha lasciato il gioco, ci ha insegnato e lasciato Mamba Mentality in tutto il mondo e quanto sarà difficile il lavoro se ti dedichi.

    Kobe adorava la cultura italiana.

    Kobe il più grande giocatore dentro e fuori dal campo.
    Il suo QI era alto.

    Kobe era un uomo pensante intelligente.

    GiGi era il suo regalo.

  93. Lawrence Reitan Reply

    He knew how to speak italian, very fluently as he lived there, so spanish is not a big leap, anyway you can tell he was a smart man
