Besides Team USA with Austin Reaves being some of the biggest spotlights in the FIBA World Cup and Luka Doncic 'killing' it in the competition, there's a player that is getting a lot of attention because of his physique but most importantly his game is looking like the late Lakers legend Kobe Bryant.

The Jordan star Rondae Hollis-Jefferson is having a great personal FIBA World Cup so far, even when his team ended the first round being eliminated as they lost their third game earlier today against Team USA.

Hollis-Jefferson is getting a lot of attention because of his looks and the game has emulated Kobe Bryant, and the Lakers fans have been getting emotional by some of his plays in the competition.

Rondae was in the NBA but he wasn't able to find another team and now wants to return to the league. "Once I was out of the league, I had to reevaluate myself… I was in the Green Room. I felt like I was on a pedestal… Not being in the NBA, not having a roster spot woke me up to humble myself." Hollis-Jefferson spoke on his journey.

The fans want Rondae to have another opportunity in the NBA

After what Rondae Hollis-Jefferson showed in the FIBA World Cup with Jordan, the NBA fans want him back in the league, as he showed that his game could contribute to any team. Rondae scored 20 points against the United States and was the standout of his team during the competition.
