Dear Basketball - Kobe Bryant

EntradaAutor: Toni » dt. gen. 28, 2020 10:52 am

Kobe Bryant explicava al curt guanyador d'un oscar la seva extreta relació amb el bàsquet.
El seu enamorament per aquest esport quan tenia 6 anys, i a qui va donar tot, ment, cos, esperit i ànima.
Un nen de 6 anys que va veure realitzat el seu somni de jugar a la NBA amb els Lakers.
I explica el moment en que va deixar el bàsquet per que el seu cos sabia que era el moment d'acomiadar-se.

Kobe Bryant va morir en un accident d'helicòpter el passat dia 26 de gener amb la seva filla la Gigi de 13 anys, la Christina Mauser, entrenadora de bàsquet femení; John Altobelli, entrenador de beisbol; i l'Alyssa i la Keri, filla i esposa d'en Altobelli.

Compartim aquest vídeo com a petit homenatge per un dels grans de la història de la NBA.





RIP Kobe Bryant
1978–2020

Dear Basketball,

From the moment
I started rolling my dad’s tube socks
And shooting imaginary
Game-winning shots
In the Great Western Forum
I knew one thing was real:

I fell in love with you.

A love so deep I gave you my all —
From my mind & body
To my spirit & soul.

As a six-year-old boy
Deeply in love with you
I never saw the end of the tunnel.
I only saw myself
Running out of one.

And so I ran.
I ran up and down every court
After every loose ball for you.
You asked for my hustle
I gave you my heart
Because it came with so much more.

I played through the sweat and hurt
Not because challenge called me
But because YOU called me.
I did everything for YOU
Because that’s what you do
When someone makes you feel as
Alive as you’ve made me feel.

You gave a six-year-old boy his Laker dream
And I’ll always love you for it.
But I can’t love you obsessively for much longer.
This season is all I have left to give.
My heart can take the pounding
My mind can handle the grind
But my body knows it’s time to say goodbye.

And that’s OK.
I’m ready to let you go.
I want you to know now
So we both can savor every moment we have left together.
The good and the bad.
We have given each other
All that we have.

And we both know, no matter what I do next
I’ll always be that kid
With the rolled up socks
Garbage can in the corner
:05 seconds on the clock
Ball in my hands.
5 … 4 … 3 … 2 … 1

Love you always,
Kobe
