I have been a Lakers fan or should I say a Kobe fan since 1998 and that was the first time I saw him play on television. Growing up its not almost hyperbolic to say that every kid in my generation or same age group idolize Kobe more than MJ and more than Lebron(in today's generation).
Seeing my fellow Kobe fans, crying and couldn't contain their emotions, I mean Kobe transcends not just in the NBA but as an athlete globally as he inspires the next generation to be great at their own passion beyond the boundaries of a basketball court.
