I didn’t really have any moments of watching Jordan, but Kobe was my Jordan. Watching him win championships, i remember just being at home watching the games with my mom, my grandma, my dad, just idolizing him. After the game was over, I’d go in the front yard and try to imitate everything I just saw. So he was, in my eyes — not saying he’s better than Jordan — but for me, growing up, that’s who I idolized and look up to. That was the standard. He was the best player, and it wasn’t close.
