Michael Jordan pays tribute to Kobe Bryant with pregame video


The Kobe Bryant farewell tour came to Charlotte Monday night, and once again Kobe was making a few plays — hitting a three, going hard at Jeremy Lin — and playing well enough that the fans got what they wanted to see.

They also got to see a tribute from Hornets’ owner Michael Jordan, the man Kobe was compared to most (and Kobe never shied away from that comparison; at least younger, more brash Kobe didn’t). It’s genuine, heartfelt, and you can feel the respect Jordan has for Kobe.

You can’t ask for more than that.
