Kobe Bryant calls it a career tonight as the Lakers host the Jazz in their 2016 regular season finale.
Highlights upon highlights have been shown of Bryant on and off the court, but this might be the most meaningful of them all.
In the course of his 20-year career, Bryant has met over 100 children with life-threatening illnesses through Make-A-Wish.
This season, some of those “children” were invited back to reconnect with Bryant during some of his games.
“Basketball is something that will come and eventually go. The beauty in that is trying to use that time to inspire others; to provide some sort of escape for them.”
Yeah. What a legend.
