Superstar basketball player Kobe Bryant is a future NBA Hall-of-Famer. He’s won 5 NBA titles as a member of the Los Angeles Lakers.
Approaching retirement Bryant wrote a letter to the game titled “Dear Basketball”. The letter would later be morphed into an animated short.
Last night the animated short was nominated for Best Animated Short at the 2018 Oscar Awards. “Dear Basketball” would go on to win the award and earn Kobe Bryant his first Oscar.
