Kobe Bryant reveals why he learned to tap dance after injury

Wednesday, October 24th, 2018

On Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Kobe Bryant talked about taking tap lessons to improve his game. In his new book, The Mamba Mentality: How I Play, Kobe writes that during the 2000 NBA Finals against the Indiana Pacers, he suffered the worst sprained ankle of his career, causing him to miss the next game — something Kobe did not take lightly. The Lakers went on to win the championship, but Kobe still felt the need to take up tap in the off season to strengthen his ankles.
