VIDEO: Tyronn Lue Recalls Fond Memories Of Kobe Bryant
The night was all about LeBron James and Kobe Bryant; perhaps even more so than the Cleveland Cavaliers and Los Angeles Lakers playing a regular season game. It was an excellent opportunity for everyone, especially for the players, to cherish and pay respect to an all-time great.
But outside of the players, Cavs head coach Tyronn Lue held as much sentiments as anyone over this game, having played with Bryant in one of the Lakers’ championship teams of the early 2000s. In this FOX Sports Ohio video, Cavs play-by-play announcer Fred McLeod spoke with Lue about, what else, Kobe Bryant.
Bryant’s love for the game is common knowledge already. But seeing someone, who actually spent quality time with the Lakers superstar, gush about his confidence, competitive nature, and determination is a quite a moment in it own.
