Kobe Bryant, the former NBA player,who has won five lakers championship rings in his 20 years career,announced to retire after his final game played on April 13,2016 for LA lakers and in NBA. on Dec.18,2017, his No. 8 and No. 24 jerseys was retired at halftime during the Lakers vs. Warriors matchup. So this is how the Kobe Bryant Retirement Ring about. Meamwhile, in all NBA HOF rings, the Kobe retirement ring might probably the first ring that engraved with 2 jerseys and numbers,so why two? No 8 from 1996-2005, three kobe bryant lakers championship rings; NO 24 from 2006-2016, two more kobe bryant lakers championship rings. he’d have litterally a 99.8 and 99.9 pct chance of making two HOF careers by two different numbers. And this is the 1st player with two jersey number retired at the same NBA team, so how can this Kobe ring miss up this great record?
After his retirement, he won a Oscars award by short film “Dear Basketball” for “best animated short” at the 2018 Academy Awards, you can see that he is really doing what he is saying in public—-work hard and stick to it until it come true.
So in the introduction of this 2016 Kobe Bryant Retirement Ring, we would like to come back his speech in the retirement ceremony: ” Lastly our daughters, Natalia, Bianca and Gianna. You guys know that if you do the work, you work hard enough, dreams come true. You know that, we all know that. But hopefully what you get from tonight is that those times when you get up early and you work hard; those times when you stay up late and you work hard; those times when don’t feel like working — you’re too tired, you don’t want to push yourself — but you do it anyway.That is actually the dream. That’s the dream. It’s not the destination, it’s the journey. And if you guys can understand that, what you’ll see happen is that you won’t accomplish your dreams, your dreams won’t come true, something greater will. And if you guys can understand that, then I’m doing my job as a father.”
The above is for all kobe bryant fans. and sports fans..
