Kobe Bryant is undeniably one of the greatest players in the history of the NBA. Unfortunately, Bryant passed away almost four months ago in a tragic helicopter accident that claimed the life of his daughter and seven others. Since then, numerous NBA players have posted tributes in Kobe’s honor and it has become abundantly clear that Bryant’s legacy will live on well past this current generation of players.
Just yesterday, Golden State Warriors star Klay Thompson took to Instagram with a small tribute to Kobe. As you can see from the post below, Thompson reminisced about a Kobe skills camp he got to attend while he was in high school. In the post, Thompson makes sure to let people know that Kobe is the greatest of all time.
“One of the greatest experiences of my life was being able to participate in the goats 🐐 skills academy back in HS,” Thompson wrote. “I was so star struck the whole time and couldn’t believe I was on the same hardwood as Bean.”
Clearly, the skills camp worked out quite well for Thompson as he has blossomed into one of the best shooters in the NBA. Kobe would certainly be proud to see him on the court right now.
