      I'm confused at around <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="320">5:20</a>, he said he celebrated when Kobe copter hit the mountain?

    3. Jimmie Rustler

    12. カオンデンジェイソン

      LeBron could feed all of Africa with them chains but he prefers keeping them around his neck. Lechoke style. Didn't even go to the memorial for Kobe... lefake James.

    13. That Guy

      Y’all peep the chains and the Richard Mille 🔥🔥🔥

    14. VT Racing 1

      Dream shake... Hakeem

    15. Vincent Williams

      As a Celtic fan I was shocked but I understand why Mr Russell wore it

    16. America WW

      Everytime I see bill Russell I feel nothing but respect for what he did for basketball as one of the first all time greats in the game As a die hard laker fan i appreciate seeing Russell wearing Kobe’s jersey. I’m also crying inside because a part of laker nation imagined Kobe getting up there in age like Russell attending nba games when he grew old. We will never get that chance to see old man Kobe walking around the house he built . Vanessas speech broke me too can’t fathom losing a child and being robbed of seeing a child go to high school, get married, starting a family 😭

    17. Paul Hardrick

      The Thumbs Down Haters Are Classless And Probably Never Played In Organized Team Sports!


      LeBron neck got the salary of a entire wnba starting lineup

    19. Theodes Lewis

      Mr.Bill Russell in #24 Jersey is priceless...

    32. offseazon


    33. Titan Up


    34. Rodrigo Esparza

    35. Papi God


    36. Belak

    40. Dwayne Carter

      It be funny how the media via trying to yell at the same time trying to get a question off

    41. sheep in the MATRIX


    42. alphonso Drovel

      I am and have always been amazed, astonished, and impressed by Lebron's mind "recall," of every play made or not made during the battle. Most player's remember what they did during the game but to recall what your team members did or their stats are impressive (to me).

    43. Kbjpj824

      Sorry guys Bryant Jersey next to fire alarm Microphone showing a pyramid all seeing eye and Bron chains represent something deeper ....Star on the Ny Hat I dunno man

    44. wilsonsmanz

      I mean if Bill Russel was wearing Kobe's Jersey, can we get a statement from Bill Russell at least.

    45. Irshad Zamir

      Le' choke talking about bailing out his teammates , yeah like you did vs the clippers . you haven't bailed out nobody u been bailed out by Dwyane, kyrie and Allen

    46. Bee J Incredible

      No accident

    47. Turhan Henderson

      We still talking bout this? Oh ight, coo

    48. Adrian McCoy

      In the 90s both lakers and celtics were irrelevant!

    49. Toby Holland

      I would love to see Clippers vs Lakers in WCF and I'll be cheering for the Lakers. I'd love to see Milwaukee vs Raptors in the ECF. As Toronto is my hometown, I'll be cheering for the Raps, but I love Giannis as well and don't mind seeing the Bucks get to the Finals. Lakers vs Bucks could be epic. Lakers seem to play with a ton of heart. Haven't seen that out of the Clippers in the same way this season.

    50. Twizz The Whiz Kid

      Kobe is The G.O.A.T.

    51. Marcus Moore

      I think this the first time I have seen Lebron wear so much jewelry 🤔

    52. Royal Me

      Kobe would never replace Lakers jersey and never take his talent to Boston.

    53. Steez Unlimited

      Why is this news??

    54. David Anthony

      Those chains are worth 5k

    55. Master2sick2thousand26

    56. John One

    63. Simeon Michael Pitter Puślecki

      Odwagi :). Występuje Pan do tak dużej publiczności... W trakcie meczu. Po co to zmieszanie?

    64. Txong Yang

      Bill Russell wearing Kobe's jersey is by far one of the greatest things I've witness in sports. Period.

    65. Clamps

      LeDrip out here flexing

    66. Crazy Dave

      I think the reason why youtube is recommending videos of people that died recently, is because when they die, their name gets trended/searched on google so NOsel takes that popularity (since YT is owned by Google) as what people want to see so they recommend videos with either their name in the title or in the tags.

    67. tito jackson
