Who else could do this other than Bryant? DeRozan thought he could potentially try and get in the Hall-of-Famer’s head by rocking some different sneakers, but if anything, it annoyed Bryant to the point that he had to go on and ball out against DeRozan and his teammates.
That was a lesson learned for DeRozan, as he admitted that he never put on another pair of Jordans for a game again. That was the kind of impact Bryant had on his opposition during his incredible career.
Unfortunately, Bryant and his young daughter Gigi were on board the helicopter that crashed in Calabasas. There were a total of nine fatalities. Bryant will always be remembered for his outstanding personality and work ethic. Former teammates of his continue to say that no one could outwork Bryant in the gym.
Thanks to stories like this one from DeRozan, people are able to remember just how competitive he was. There will never be another player like Bryant in the NBA.
