Stephen Curry gets his NBA All Star game jersey signed by Kobe Bryant, joining the likes of Draymond Green, Trevor Ariza, Kevin Durant, and LeBron James to have memorabilia signed.
With his exit from the NBA imminent, Los Angeles Lakers forward Kobe Bryant let go of the scowl on his face and enjoyed the scenery around the NBA in his farewell tour.
Players around the league – including most of the NBA All Stars – grew up idolizing Kobe in the early half of his 20-year NBA career and wished him well. Among those was Stephen Curry, who played alongside Bryant with the West All Stars in the mid-season classic.
Following the West All Stars 196-173 win over the East All Stars in Toronto, Stephen Curry approached Kobe inside the locker room to have his jersey signed in what was the final time that the Golden State Warriors guard plays alongside the Lakers great.
The Black Mamba obliged and shared a moment inside the locker room:
