DEAR KOBE, I got your letter. As I'm sure you are aware,
you were not the first to fall in love with me.
There were others who professed and proclaimed.
Some burned bright.
Most burned out.
I watched them all come and go.
Because I've seen it all.
Every game.
From peach baskets to the present.
See, I know what greatness looks like.
I know what it takes.
I know it's not for everybody.
So, yeah, I was skeptical.
Skeptical a kid from Lower Merion could take me places I'd never been.
Skeptical your game could inspire nations and generations.
So I tested you.
From Day 1, I tested you.
I threw everything I had at you.
I wanted to see if Draft Day would destroy you or drive you.
I wanted to see if those airballs in Utah would be a shot to your confidence.
I wanted to see if broken bones and banged up knees and separated
shoulders and torn tendons would lessen your love.
They deepened it. You didn't have to tell me you loved me.
You showed me.
You showed us.
I have inspired many but been inspired by few. Thank you,
Basketball
P.S.
I didn't think you had 60 in you. But I've been wrong before.

THE KOBE XI ELITE LETTER Is an homage to a Brazilian basketball
player Kobe grew up watching as a kid in
Italy. The legendary player taught Kobe

looked like. The Kobe XI Elite Letter
features stars that represent the
Brazilian's scoring titles and a design
inspired by Brazilian art and architecture.
