Tonight was the first night the Lakers have played since the terrible tragedy that occurred Sunday morning where nine lives were lost. This night was highlighted by a LeBron speech where he addressed Laker Nation and payed respects to his dear friend Kobe Bryant. The speech is incredibly hard to watch and this night has everyone in their feelings and rightfully so.
The entire Laker starting lineup was introduced from ‘Lower Merion High school’ as they were sporting Kobe jerseys with 8 on the front and number 24 on the back.
It was a emotional night for all obviously, and it isn’t going to get any easier the best thing we all can do is hold onto the great memories we have of Kobe and all the times he brought us joy. LeBron has to win this title for Kobe. As LeBron said in the words of Kobe ‘Mamba out, but not forgotten. Live on brother.” We love you Kobe.
