Retiring Los Angeles Lakers superstar Kobe Bryant said he doesn’t want any on-court festivities of opposing teams giving him gifts because he feels it would distract from the game. The Toronto Raptors respected those wishes but still managed to give Bryant a couple of parting gifts after the game on Monday.
DeMar DeRozan shared a video and photos of him giving Kobe a pair of customized sneakers and a customized hat showcasing his accomplishments with the “We The North” writing to let him know Canada appreciates him.
Hopefully other teams step up the gifts. We need as much entertainment as possible with Lakers games.
