Kobe Bryant to be Hittin Switches and Bendin Corners in retirement
Snoop Dogg hooked Kobe up with a pretty sweet rideby Robert Moore, on
If you’re a fan of basketball, music, or even enjoy keeping up with various celebrities, then you probably know that Snoop Dogg and Kobe Bryant are friends. With Kobe finally retiring, it was only suitable that his closest friends give him a retirement gift, right? With a friend like Snoop, one might expect Kobe to receive a big bag of the Snoops finest green as a “welcome to retirement package,” but Snoop went even bigger than that.
Instead of passing off a pound or two of that sticky icky on his newly retired friend, Snoop went all out and gifted the recent retiree his classic 1967 Pontiac Parisienne. For those of you who don’t know about the car, Snoop has owned the car – assuming it’s the same one we’ve seen in the past – since 2005 when it was signed by Shaq at a GM-sponsored car show called “Rollin’ 24 deep.” The car has a wild and loud yellow finish with a Purple top to go with a set of beautiful wheels and an awesome mural that depicts Snoop as part of the Lakers team. On top of that, the car has a legitimate hydraulics system, so you can probably expect to see Kobe bending some corners on three wheels in the near future.
What more is there to say? That’s one hell of a retirement gift, and it looks like Kobe thinks so too based on his facial expression when Snoop handed over the keys.
