KOBE TEI: Basketball runs in the blood

Basketball is more than a hobby that keeps the junior busy after school. For Kobe Tei basketball is a big part of his life.

Playing since he was 9, Tei grew up around the sport. ¨It was cool having my sisters around to practice with me.

Coming from a basketball family it was almost inevitable that he would play one day. The shooting guard says his father was the main reason why he started playing.

“My dad played when he was younger, I wanted to follow his footsteps.”

Tei started his athletic career with football but soon realized basketball was his passion and stuck with it ever since.
