The Legend Michael Jordan Emotionally Left The Stage at Kobe's Memorial Service

A sports fan who found Kobe Bryant, who died on Jan. 26, 2020,  difficult to root for during his basketball career grapples with the pain, and regret, he feels in the wake of his death.

Even the basketball legend Michael Jordan is feeling devastated while he was speaking during the public memorial of "The Celebration of Life for Kobe & Gianna Bryant" at Staples Center on February 24, 2020, in Los Angeles, California.

According to him, he didn't see Bryant as his rival for the mythical honor of being recognized as the best basketball player ever. Instead, he came to love Bryant as the little brother he never had, and as a student eager to learn from Jordan's experiences and skills.

“When Kobe Bryant died, a piece of me died, and as I look in this arena, across the globe, a piece of you died,” the NBA legend said with tears streaming down his face.

“I promise you, from this day forward, I will live with the memories and knowing that I had a little brother,” Jordan, widely regarded as the greatest player in history, added.

“I tried to help in every way I could. Please rest in peace, little brother.”

Those attending the memorial were given a 24-page program with pictures of Bryant and his family as well as a pin and a black T-shirt featuring images of Kobe and his daughter on the back.
