Rep. Peter King: Kobe Bryant ‘Has All the Moves’ to Be a Politician

United States Congressman Peter King said Tuesday he believes Los Angeles Lakers legend Kobe Bryant has the makeup to be a politician.

In an interview with TMZ Sports, King said the Black Mamba has “all the moves” needed to be a success in politics.

King’s remarks came after Bryant’s jersey retirement ceremony with the Lakers on Monday, during which Lakers president of basketball operations Magic Johnson made comments suggesting Kobe could thrive in the political realm, per Ari Gilberg of the New York Daily News:

“The thing Kobe is this, brother: We need you right now. When I look into this audience, there [are] all races of people [who] come together, cheered you on for 20 years. And this country needs to come together. And you were able to bring us all together—the city and Los Angeles—for 20 years. So I want to thank you for that.”
