Kobe Bryant called out one of the players on the girls youth basketball team he coaches for missing a game for a dance recital in an Instagram post.
Bryant later amended the post, saying that her absence meant “she enjoyed dance more than ball which is fine,” and that “Now? She eats sleeps and breathes the game.”
Some fans on social media called out Bryant for the post, but Kobe said he was just trying to explain why the girl wasn’t in the picture.
