I have shared my story several times before to friends and family. The story of the day I met Kobe Bryant in 1996 at Venice Beach. Take a look below to watch the whole day.
So, just the other day I was on Facebook and as I am scrolling through all the political nonsense I see these photos.
I couldn’t believe it! My friend and Venice Beach Hoop Legend, Fred Eckles had shared these photos with his timeline. It was that Sunday, September 1st, 1996, Venice Beach as the backdrop to one of my most memorable days on earth. And to top it all off… I was in one of the photos. It was like my youth was not completely lost. Someone had taken these photos and I had not seen them since that day but only in my mind. Please watch the video above so you can really take in what that day was like.
R.I.P. Kobe “Black Mamba” Bryant
