LeBron James posts another emotional tribute to Kobe Bryant

first_img Loading… ‘Man I love you big bro. My heart goes to Vanessa and the kids. I promise you I’ll continue your legacy man! ‘Please give me the strength from the heavens above and watch over me.’ The two men never played together for the Lakers, but James had a ‘dream come true’ when they lined up side-by-side in a triumphant US Olympic team. James, 35, moved into third place in the NBA all-time rankings on Saturday after beating Bryant’s total of 33,643, and hailed the older man as an ‘inspiration’ in a warm tribute. LeBron also celebrated Bryant with the message ‘Mamba 4 Life’ on his sneakers when he beat Kobe’s record. Bryant praised LeBron in response for ‘continuing to take the game forward’, signing off with the words ‘much respect my brother’ in what proved to be his last tweet. James also recalled how he first met his idol at a youth basketball camp and described how Bryant had gifted him a pair of red, white and blue Nikes. ‘I was just listening,’ James said. ‘I was just trying to soak everything up I could. ‘I remember one thing he said was that if you want to try and be great at it, and want to be one of the greats, you’ve got to put the work in.’ LeBron passed Bryant’s record in Philadelphia, where Bryant was born. ‘There’s just too much. The story is just too much,’ James said. Read Also:NBA players, fans pay tribute to trailblazing idol Kobe ‘The story doesn’t make sense. Make a long story short, now I’m here in a Lakers uniform, in Philadelphia where he’s from.’ Grieving fans said the emotional tributes had become ‘hard to watch’ after Bryant’s sudden death. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 LeBron James has posted a second emotional tribute to Kobe Bryant after the NBA legend’s death in a helicopter crash on Sunday. A heartbroken James shared a clip of himself playfully embracing Bryant on the sidelines of an NBA fixture just four weeks ago. James hailed his former Olympic team-mate with the caption ‘My brother!! I love you man!’. He added a series of emojis including a broken heart and a snake, referring to Bryant’s nickname, the Black Mamba. The clip which James shared on Instagram shows the two men embracing at the Staples Center on December 29, less than a month before Bryant’s death. LeBron was playing for the Lakers against the Dallas Mavericks when he exchanged a playful hug and some warm words with Bryant, who was sitting on the sidelines. Sunday’s helicopter tragedy had a particular personal meaning for James, who saw Bryant as an inspiration throughout his childhood and career. In a poignant coincidence, James had exchanged emotional tributes with Bryant less than 24 hours before his death after passing his NBA points tally on Saturday. The following day, James learned of Bryant’s death while the Lakers were flying home from the game in Philadelphia. An emotional James wept on the tarmac at LAX after the team arrived back in Los Angeles on Sunday. In a first Instagram tribute yesterday, James hailed the two men’s ‘brotherhood’ and vowed to continue Bryant’s legacy. ‘I literally just heard your voice Sunday morning before I left Philly to head back to LA,’ he said. ‘Didn’t think for one bit in a million years that would be the last conversation we’d have. ‘WTF!! I’m heartbroken and devastated my brother!!

I just said let me do what I’m going to do.“The feeling when the ball hit the net was relief because I was just buzzing that it had gone in and we were level.“We know how good Braga are and that they have a lot of players who could hurt us. If we were not at it we would have suffered. That’s what happened in the early part of the game but we need to be on top form over there for the second leg.”Read Also:Joe Aribo’s Rangers fined £15,000 by Scottish FARangers will travel to Portugal for the return fixture against Braga on Wednesday, after Sunday’s Scottish Premiership clash against St. Johnstone.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Promoted ContentTop 7 Best Car Manufacturers Of All Time15 Celebs You Probably Didn’t Expect To Be CheerleadersTop Tastiest Foods From All Over The WorldPortuguese Street Artist Creates Hyper-Realistic 3D Graffiti8 Superfoods For Growing Hair Back And Stimulating Its Growth7 Universities In The World Where Education Costs Too MuchTop 8 Most Fun Sylvester Stallone MoviesEver Thought Of Sleeping Next To Celebs?

Since returning from the winter break, Gerrard has seen his team slip 10 points behind Celtic in the race for the title.Joe Aribo’s introduction from the bench proved pivotal for Rangers and his equalising goal was mesmerising. The ex-Charlton man was forced on at left-back but that didn’t stop him unleashing his creative spark.Graig Smith reacted in his twitter handle: ‘Still can not get over that last night. Hagi & Aribo deserve MASSIVE plaudits for the way they stepped up a gear & got the crowd going & everyone else followed.’Meanwhile, Aribo has described his equaliser against Braga as the ‘most important goal of his career till date’.“It’s hard to put it into words. It’s the most important goal of my career to date,” Aribo told Glasgow Times.“The boys are just buzzing with the result. We are all absolutely ecstatic. I’ve never experienced anything like the atmosphere tonight. It was like a 12th man. It was a lovely feeling to have the backing of the fans.“The gaffer told me to be positive when I came off the bench and to take the ball to them and just distract them, so they are not having it their own way.“I’ve never scored a goal like that before. What was in my mind? I just thought I was going to keep going. I got past the first man and there was no turning back. I just had to keep going and I found myself in front of goal- luckily I found the back of the net. Ianis Hagi’s brace and stunning solo goal from Aribo ensured the Gers didn’t rue early goals by Fransergio and Abel Ruiz proved in vain. Of course, Braga’s two goals could still help them qualify. A 1-0 home win next week would see Rangers dumped out of the competition but nonetheless this was a good victory.last_img read more
