[PSA] Kobe B. Bryant | LA Lakers

Let me break character real quick for this psa post.

Thanks Kobe, for two decades of basketball goodness. The beginning, the good years, the bad years, the revived years, the declining years– it’s all been a joy to watch and experience.

I haven’t followed basketball for a while now (wasn’t able to catch his last game either but I’m gonna catch a restream of it some time), but you can’t miss anything when the internet blows up about it.

I first started watching basketball circa elementary school, catching a few games after school at my grandparent’s house. I got hooked eventually. “Basketball is fun” is what I thought.Β At first I didn’t care who I was watching nor did I know anybody or any team that was playing. Eventually some guy caught my attention. I don’t know why but something about the way he played and presented himself really got to me.

Kobe Bryant. Number 8. Los Angeles Lakers.

I never cared about a team to be honest. Didn’t care for my own city’s team, didn’t care for the Lakers where Kobe played, I was a fan of the player himself. And to see my favorite player growing up finally retire and hang up the boots, man it’s bittersweet as fuck; downright sad.

Thanks Kobe, you’ll always be #1 to me.
