Dreams do come true, if you want them bad enough to the point where you can't stop crying.

Well, at least that's the case for young Lakers fan Ayden, who arrived just late at a recent event where he was supposed to meet Kobe Bryant.

He was completely devastated.

Luckily for Ayden, this video posted by his mother found its way to Kobe's wife, Vanessa, through the power of social media. Vanessa then arranged for Ayden to meet Kobe at a commercial shoot yesterday, and he was completely awe-struck.

He'll need to work on those skills, but with Kobe as his new friend, he should be in good shape.
