I ‘d like to meet Kobe Bryant who’s one of the greatest basketball players the world has ever seen. I watched his games growing up. If I remember correctly, the first game of his I watched was almost 15 years ago when he still had O’Neil by his side. He was so young, talented and unstoppable.

He had a successful career. In the past 20 years, he won 5 times NBA championships for the Lakers and more than a dozen MVP titles. His 81 point game will be remembered forever.
His warrior spirit inspires many people including me. No wonder he has become so famous. In one interview, when asked why he was so successful, his answer started with a question that ‘Have you ever seen the sunrise at 4 in Los Angeles?’ then he said,’ I see it everyday. ‘ Kobe can be a good case of how diligence works in our life. He deserves all the flowers and applause.
Kobe has brought many wonderful games to us. His jersey retired at Staples Center on the night of December the nineteenth 2017. It’s a moment that’s going to be remembered by all basketball fans all over the world.
