Shaq Remembers Kobe Bryant in Emotional But Funny Speech at Kobe Bryant's Memorial

Shaq Remembers Kobe Bryant in Emotional But Funny Speech at Kobe Bryant's Memorial
when I have imagined speaking to a group of people about Kobe Bryant I usually pitch in the context of his Hall of Fame induction was a guest speaker one of Kobe and Vanessa's foundations of it but never ever could I've imagined that I'd be here today speaking at his

memorial

and it pains me to my core like all of you I continue to be devastated over the loss of my friend I'm a little brother Kobe Bryant and my beautiful niece Gigi - Vanessa and the kids Kobe's parents sisters and other families who've lost their loved ones on that tragic day we grieve with you all of us were forever changed on January 26 as we know the black mambas legacy will be more than just being one of the greatest basketball players of all time and believe me who be Kobe was truly a gift it and the challenge is to not the game I remember him saying these guys are playing checkers and I'm out here playing chess and I would say I guess oh Kobe I don't know how to play chess but I could tell you that Kobe II what fill Kobe's heart with the most pride was his role as a loving husband - Vanessa daddy - GG and Natalya Bianca and baby Capri and a loving son and brother Kobe was a loyal friend and a true renaissance man as many of you know Kobe and I had a very complex relationship to our peers but not unlike another leadership duo John Lennon and Paul McCartney was creative robbery led to some of the greatest music of all time Kobe and I pushed one another play some of the greatest basketball of all time and I am proud of no other team has accomplished what the three-peat Lakers have done some checking and the Kobe Lakers better and yes sometimes like immature kids we argued we folks we ban it or insulted each other with offhand remarks our field but make no mistake you when the folks start we were on bad terms when the cameras are turned off he and I would throw a wink at each other and say let's go look you never took it seriously in truth coping I always maintain a deep respect and a love for one another today I gained the day Kobe gained my respect was the guys were complaining she shed Kobe's not passing the ball I said I'll talk to him I said Kobe there's no I in team and Kobe said I know but there's a amia so we're back until Ricky enough and big Shabbat I said just get the rebound he's not passing Mambo you were taken away from us way too soon your next chapter of life was just beginning but now it's time for us to continue your legacy you said yourself that everything negative pressure challenges is all opportunity for me to rest so we now take that sage advice and now rise from anguish and begin with the healing just know that we've got your back little brother I'll look after things down here I'll be sure to teach Natalia Bianca and baby Capri all your moves and I promise I will not teach them my free throw techniques but for now I'll take comfort in fact as we speak Kobe and Gigi are holding hands walking to the nearest basketball court Kobe will show us a little mama moves today and Gigi soon message Kobe or heavens MVP I love you my man until we meet again
