Perspective on Kobe Bryant Remarks

Perspective on Kobe Bryant Remarks

As many of you know, Kobe Bryant recently made some very harsh remarks toward our AAU Basketball program. Here is what Kobe Bryant told Eric Pincus of the LA Times during a recent interview:

“AAU basketball. Horrible, terrible AAU basketball. It’s stupid, it doesn’t teach our kids how to play the game, at all. In America, it’s a big problem for us. We’re not teaching players how to play all-around basketball,that’s why you have Pau [Gasol] and you have Marc [Gasol] and the reason why 90% of the [San Antonio] Spurs roster are European players, because they have more skills.”

Here are some great perspectives, responses and articles that defend the AAU and go against a lot of the negative press we have received.
