Kobe Bryant Tribute & Bo Jackson’s Birthday


On the 22nd episode of Bacon Shorts by Bacon Sports with Rob Cressy, Rob delivers a Kobe Bryant Tribute in the most Bacon Sports way possible by wearing 5 different jerseys at once. He also dishes about the 1996 NBA Draft, the 1997 NBA Slam Dunk Contest, plus plays a game of Guess Kobe Bryant’s Career Earnings. To wrap it up Rob celebrates the birthday and awesomeness of one of the greatest athletes ever, Bo Jackson.
