Kevin Garnett reveals what Kobe Bryant said to him after he was traded to Celtics

“YO, MAN, YOU WAS TRYING TO GET IN CONTACT WITH ME? ... YOU IN THAT WRONG COLOR, MAN. WHAT THE F---, MAN. HOW YOU GONNA GO TO BOSTON OF ALL PLACES."

Kevin Garnett wishes he got the chance to play with Kobe Bryant

“I’ve often wondered what playing with [Kobe] would’ve been like…If playing with [Paul Pierce] was like this, then playing with [Kobe] would’ve been like what?”

Gasol talks about Kobe in Episode 1 of his documentary on Amazon Prime Video documentary called "Pau Gasol: Its About the Journey." https://youtu.be/VTa4GvWD3sg?t=75

Quote:
“The objective of the documentary was to show the personal side and to be authentic. To be transparent with what was happening and unfortunately, this tragic accident took place and it was a very hard blow that is still being digested. We could not hide it, although for me it was hard. But Kobe had meant so much in my life that it was a way to convey those feelings in the most natural way possible. It took me a long time to sleep well, there were a lot of crying and a lot of pain,” Gasol told Marca.

Still choke up when Kobe is mentioned, RIP Mamba, Gigi.

Oh man that’s crazy about Body Armour

Shows along with the Oscar Kobe would have been amazing at anything he dedicated too, not just hoops.

GOAT mentality.

Especially when reading about others like Pau crying.. gets me in the feels all over again

"Look not mournfully into the Past. It comes not back again.
Wisely improve the Present. It is thine.
Go forth to meet the shadowy Future, without fear, and with a manly heart."

Was in the thread earlier wanting to post just KOBE!.. anything offday for me lol

Thank you so much for posting this.. Coby.. ok.. I started watching the vid and reading at the same time..

Quote:
Coby Bryant won the Jim Thorpe Award as the top defensive back in college football this season. (at 6'1" 198)


... Jim Thorpe.. back when they wore leather helmets on muddy fields... BADASS!!

Thorpe was the first Native American to win a gold medal for the United States in the Olympics - TY Wiki


Look at this

Quote:
Jim Thorpe won gold medals in the pentathlon and decathlon at the 1912 Olympics
in mismatched shoes of different sizes that he got out of a (bleep) trash can after his (bleep) was stolen.
That, my friends, is American badassery at its finest.

Thank you Coby Bryant for living up to your name

I was at McDonalds once and the young kid taking my order was named Alexander
I told him "That's quite a strong name they gave you Alexander" in a complimentary tone...

Lots of Kobe highlights popping up in my YT stream again...

Especially his final go ahead shot. I'll tell you this one thing, I'll never forget Randle setting one hell of an illegal screen to make it happen.

16 years ago today, Kobe Bryant made history.

81 points in a game...unreal.

Personally, I think a deal will be worked out. His shoes are just too in demand, but Nike needs to play fair with the Bryant family.

Kobe 4s are the best basketball shoes in history.
