Kobe Bryant has been on a whirlwind Asia tour since August 3rd, and we already know he’s missing his “Queen Mamba,” after he posted pics of her in a bikini. Turns out he’s not all that lonely over in China, as an enormous crowd gathered in Shenzhen just to get a glimpse of the Lakers legend.
Fully embracing the Chinese culture, Bean even tried his hand at noodle pulling on what appears to be some sort of variety/cooking show.
Check above for photos of the insane crowd, with people climbing lamp posts and just generally losing their mind with Kobe being in town.
One man (yes, full grown man) was so overcome with emotion that he broke down into tears, and the translation from Shanghaiist says the man said, “After seeing Kobe I was overcome with excitement. I couldn’t stop crying...I kept crying.” Guess they really love Kobe Bryant in China.
