If you didn't know, China loves them some Kobe Bryant. Every time Bryant visits, the people go into a frenzy and in turn, he doesn't leave them disappointed, like the time he dropped 68 points in the second half of a charity game. Now, Kobe's star has reached new heights with a statue erected for the Lakers star. Peep the statue in the thumbnail. 

Very basic pose, if we should say so. We would've enjoyed seeing one of these three instead:

An pumped up, team-repping Kobe.

A jersey sweat-sucking Kobe.

Kobe showing some teammate lovin'.
