Kobe Bryant steals high fives, players dance like Carlton Banks in 'NBA 2K16'


Kobe Bryant doesn't need friends. He has banners. That's why he has no problem stealing high fives — at least the video game version of him doesn't.

"NBA 2K16" doesn't hit the shelves until Tuesday, but those who pre-ordered the game got to play the latest installment of the popular basketball franchise Friday. That means some had the early pleasure of seeing Bryant preventing Harrison Barnes from celebrating his made free throw with Draymond Green.
