Watch Kendrick Lamar’s Tribute To Kobe Bryant

Tomorrow, after 20 seasons and five NBA championships, Kobe Bryant will play his final professional basketball game. For those of us who can barely remember the NBA before Bryant showed up, this feels impossible, but it’s happening all the same. As Exclaim points out, ESPN commissioned fellow LA resident Kendrick Lamar to pay tribute to the polarizing Laker in a new 30 For 30 short called Kobe Bryant: Fade To Black. The clip features Kendrick (rocking an untitled unmastered. baseball cap) delivering spoken word about Bryant’s career over top of “untitled 07″ and video highlights from throughout his career.
