We're fully aware of the fact that basketball isn't as popular in other countries as it is here. So we'd excuse a sports analyst from overseas for failing to recognize guys likeĀ Ian Mahinmi, Alonzo Gee, or Sundiata Gaines. Hell, we might not recognize those guys if they walked up to us in full uniforms carrying their NBA contracts.

But fast-forward to the 4:40 mark of this clip and peep the way this soccer analyst had no idea who Kobe Bryant was when he was shown walking along the sidelines at the Manchester United/Barcelona match over the weekend. Classic. [via Sports Crackle Pop]
