Alla notizia del ritiro di Kobe Bryant tutto il mondo, cestistico e non solo, ha avuto una reazione; tra tweet e dichiarazioni ufficiali, ecco alcuni esempi.

Paul George: “Kobe was my (Michael) Jordan. I didn’t really have any moments of watching Jordan, but Kobe was my Jordan. Watching him win championships, i remember just being at home watching the games with my mom, my grandma, my dad, just idolizing him. After the game was over, I’d go in the front yard and try to imitate everything I just saw. So he was, in my eyes — not saying he’s better than Jordan — but for me, growing up, that’s who I idolized and look up to. That was the standard. He was the best player, and it wasn’t close.”




Adam Silver: “With 17 NBA All-Star selections, an NBA MVP, five NBA championships with the Lakers, two Olympic gold medals and a relentless work ethic, Kobe Bryant is one of the greatest players in the history of our game.  Whether competing in the Finals or hoisting jump shots after midnight in an empty gym, Kobe has an unconditional love for the game. I join Kobe’s millions of fans around the world in congratulating him on an outstanding NBA career and thank him for so many thrilling memories.”






Frank Vogel: “One of the best ever to play the game. I don’t know if there’s any one moment, just throughout the course of his career you didn’t want him to have the ball in his hands with the game on the line, period. Because you knew he was going to beat you.”





Magic Johnson: “He’s the closest thing we’ve seen to Michael Jordan. He’ll probably go down as the second greatest scoring guard. You couldn’t stop him. His will to win was incredible and he stayed in the gym like no other. This guy was 24/7 basketball. I’m happy for him because he said he feels this is his time to go out. He’s going out the way he wants to go out.”


Mitch Kupchak: “I hope he has more fun, and appears less frustrated and also gets more appreciation… Because people now have to recognize that this is his last year ans that they are watching one of the all-time greats.”
Metta World Peace:
