Kobe Bryant on Marta: "She plays with such a passion..."

Last Thursday, Kobe Bryant, soccer fan, introduced the best women's player in the world, Marta Vieira da Silva, at a press conference in the Home Depot Center.
"She plays with such a passion, such a love for the game, so much creativity, I just find myself being glued to the TV set watching her play...

There were three things that I wanted to accomplish last summer: One being winning the Gold Medal in basketball, two was to watch Michael Phelps make history, and the third one was to watch Marta play in person. Fortunately, I was able to accomplish all of those things."
Kobe Bryant, one of the best athletes in the world, grew up playing calcio in Northern Italy.

If only fate had been different... :-)

But please watch him go against Marta on the pitch.
