Kobe Bryant The Creator

Creative and cool
confident moves
paint basketball masterpieces
from hip-hop grooves
on hardwood canvas
using bold brush strokes
of a bouncing ball.
Quicksliver spins blur
into indigo jump shots
accented by
purple dribble drives
SPLASHED
with high-flyin'
heart-stoppin'
eye-poppin'
jaw-droppin'
gravity-defyin
fiery-red
DUNKS
that pump
LOUD
into the crowd.
When KB breaks out his palette
to skywalk on clouds,
becoming
the POSTERIizer
The Hurry-Up-and-Hustle-Back
shot Vaporizer
Crowd Energizer
In-the-Air Improviser
serving up
sizzling shake-and-break
appetizers,
sketching out masterpieces
with the touch of an artist's hand
using the ball as his paintbrush
KB's ALWAYS in command
