Enjoy every single day people, we are always too worried about things that are actually not that important. Life is precious and you never now when it’s gonna end.
Bryant had just recently congratulated current Lakers star LeBron James, who had just passed the retired guard and former adversary for the NBA’s third place in all-time scoring.
Continuing to move the game forward @KingJames. Much respect my brother 💪🏾 #33644
