NIKE BASKETBALL: MILANO KALIBRO KOBE

A multitalented figure of pop culture, Kobe Bryant stars in another short film, but this time pulled from the archives in a time where he spoke Italian and fought street thugs. Milano Kalibro Kobe is directed by ’70s exploitation film director Enzo G. Castellari, and was supposedly discovered in the basement of the director’s house.

Thanks to the Black Mamba, a gang of ball-stealing thieves is put to rest in a battle of good and evil. Many Italian athletes make appearances, with Alberto Aquilani, Marco Belinelli, Gennaro Gattuso, Claudio Marchisio, Marco Materazzi and Giampaolo Pazzini all featured in various roles.
