Kobe Bryant came through in the final session, and celebrated with true American heroes at Staples Center.
On Sunday, the Los Angeles Lakers hosted the three American friends who helped thwart a train attack on Aug. 21 in France. Spencer Stone, Alek Skarlatos and Anthony Sadler sat courtside during LA’s 97-85 win over the Pistons, and even played a role in spurring Kobe on to greatness.
When Bryant hit a three-pointer to put the Lakers up 85-74 with 3:44 to play in the above clip, Mamba went to midcourt and high-fived the three U.S. heroes.
“They were encouraging me all game,” Bryant said after the game. “I figured I’d get one to sit down and make sure I’d dap them up.”
It’s a good thing they where cheering him on. The 37-year-old is pretty achy this morning.
