When I was a child, he is my idol and he is also my inspiration to be better in basketball. For me, Kobe Bryant is the best all-around player of basketball. He is also my favourite and I am a huge fan of Kobe. I always likes to watch the games of Kobe because he is a great player. I believe that he will have his very last championship before his retirement. When I was a child, he is my idol and he is also my inspiration to be better in basketball.
