Kobe Bryant Tells 'Jimmy Kimmel' Why He Kept His Tap Dancing a Secret - Watch Here!

Kobe Bryant made an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Tuesday night (October 23) and talked about his new book, The Mamba Mentality: How I Play, and taking tap lessons to improve his skills.

The NBA legend spoke out about his secret lessons when Jimmy asked him if he had any celebrity friends who might surprise his fans: “Surprised? I don’t know. Maybe not surprised, but, you know, recently, I’ve been spending a lot of time with Debbie Allen,” Kobe said, referring to his famous dance teacher.

“Well, it was kept secret for obvious reasons,” Kobe continued, adding that he had to get customized size-14 tap shoes. “I had to get them made. I can’t go to a store and be like, ‘Yeah, I’ll take those size 14s. Tap.’”

“[At one point,] I could, like, tell my feet to do this, and they would actually do that,” Kobe added. “I walked into the studio, and it’s all these, like, 6-year-olds … and these kids are looking up at me like, what in the world? What’s this grown-ass man doing in here learning tap dance?”
