Earlier this week on Instagram, famously ruthless former NBA star Kobe Bryant questioned the commitment of one of his daughter's AAU teammates, writing that she "missed this game for a dance recital" and adding, "So that should tell you where her focus was at the time." After being criticized for being too harsh on the young girl, Bryant claimed that "it wasn't a slight," and on Thursday posted old footage of his 12-year-old self dancing to "Ice, Ice Baby," along with the caption, "When I was 12, I skipped basketball for two weeks so I could dance in a school show. I'm all about diversifying while young, then locking in on your passion." And we've got to say: The young Mamba had some moves!
