American professional basketball player, Kobe Bryant, has been breaking records since he was first drafted to the NBA straight out of high school.
The 37-year-old basketball star has had an amazing career in the NBA. He has mastered the game by winning five NBA championships and playing 20 consecutive seasons on the same team, setting a historic record. Though Bryant is an All-Star player, he is ready to call it a wrap. With his retirement right around the corner, it is only right to pay homage to him for being such a trend setter in not only the game of basketball, but in spreading motivation worldwide.
Star recording artist Kendrick Lamar took the lead, teaming up with ESPN, and narrated a piece written by Scoop Jackson in a tribute video to Bryant. Lamar performed the tribute over his single “Levitate,” which is from his Untitled album that he released last month.
“It’s over, it’s really over. Kobe retiring; this is crazy” -Kendrick Lamar expressed.
In the tribute, you can find highlight clips of Kobe Bryant on the court throughout his NBA journey. Take a look at the tribute entitled “Fade to Black” below!
