It doesn’t apply only to the players though, as often times they will travel with family members and spend time with one another when visiting their city during the season.
Knowing that, it comes as no surprise that when the Los Angeles Lakers visited the Miami Heat earlier this week, Kobe Bryant shared a moment with Dwyane Wade and one of his sons.
Following the Heat’s 101-88 win, Bryant and Wade spent a few minutes together on the court chatting.
Kobe then turned his attention to Wade’s son, Zaire, sharing some tips on how to be more like “Uncle Kobe.”READ MORE: 'He Died Hoping His Security Would Come': Haiti's First Lady Wife Martine Moïse Says Of Presidential Assassination
While no formal announcement has been made, many believe this to be Bryant’s final season in the NBA.
Drafted in the first round of the 1996 NBA Draft, Bryant has been playing in the NBA for 20 seasons. He’s a 5-time NBA champion, 2-time NBA Finals MVP, 17-time All-Star and the 2009 NBA Most Valuable Player.
It would be wise for the younger Wade to take the advice of his Uncle Kobe and put up a few more shots.MORE NEWS: Broward School Board Reverses Mask Mandate, Complies With Ron DeSantis
