“I admired him because his passion you rarely see someone who’s looking and trying to improve each and every day. Not just in sports but as a parent, as a husband. I am inspired by what he’s done and what he’s shared.”
Wow. Just an incredible eulogy from Michael Jordan honoring Kobe, whom he truly felt like a big brother towards. This memorial goes to show how Kobe was bigger than basketball; people truly loved him. This speech had everything. It had heart, emotion, anecdotes, and even some much needed humor.
Hug your loved ones tonight, don’t take anything for granted, and do what makes you happy because life is short.
