In a recently conducted interview Rick Fox was asked about Kobe Bryantś involvement in Esports.
I think Kobe is aware of what is moving here in the ecosystem with some of his peers. He doesn’t have a deaf ear or a blind eye to this. We had some conversations with this. If I had to suspect, yenno, Kobe is not far off from making his own move.
Kobe Bryant has his own venture capital fund which looks to invest into oppurtunities and prospects in technology, media and data companies. Does this include eSports? The question remains up in the air. The venture capital fund is a $100 million capital fund in partnership with Jeff Stibel.
So Kobe Bryant definitely is interested in eSports. If he does invest, it would be a huge boost to esports in general.
