Wednesday night marks the final time that Los Angeles Lakers shooting guard and five-time champion Kobe Bryant will step on the court as a player, and Nike got some of its fellow ambassadors and athletes together to give Bryant a proper farewell.
The video below features the likes of Kevin Durant, LeBron James, Tiger Woods. Elena Delle Donne and Neymar, plus many others speaking of the legacy of Bryant.

It’s just a testament to the impact that Bryant has had in his 20 NBA seasons. Over that stretch, on top of his five titles, he has won an MVP trophy to go with two scoring titles. Bryant has also been named to 18 All-Star teams.
And the video hits the nail right on the head in terms of Bryant’s personality. He doesn’t care about being a beloved player, but just winning. In fact, he feeds off of being a polarizing figure and making opposing fans and players alike hate him.
Needless to say, the NBA just won’t be the same without him.
