As everyone knows, yesterday morning was the celebration of the late NBA legend Kobe Bryant to honor the role model along with his 13-year-old daughter, Gianna.
The Staples Center was filled with purple and gold jerseys, with fans roaring his name just like how they did when he was dunking on dude's heads. However an unexpected guest speaker stood high on the podium telling the crowd all about his love for Kobe.. Mr. 23 himself. He spoke about how he was inspired by Kobe Bryant's foresight, drive, and ambition to become better. It was beautiful to see someone honor Kobe who Kobe himself idolized. Michael Jordan was visibly shaken up by the loss of Kobe throughout the ceremony after Vanessa Bryant delivered a heartfelt speech to her late daughter and husband.
