Former star NBA player, and Lifetime Achievement Award winning Magic Johnson has confirmed that a Kobe Bryant documentary is almost set in stone. The documentary is going to cover Kobe’s last season in NBA. “That’s definitely going to happen”, Johnson told Entertainment Tonight’s Kevin Frazier. He continues, “I think he was smart enough to have a camera follow him, document every movement. So we’re going to see a lot of behind-the-scenes things on Kobe and he’ll probably let us into his world with his family”.
According to Complex, NBA Entertainment was given free reign to follow Kobe into the team’s charter plane, locker rooms, and the training room. The footage is reportedly in the editing stages; and it was originally set to premiere years from now; however, due to Kobe’s tragic and unforeseen death; the documentary is being pushed up with an unannounced date as of yet. Kobe was aware of and had seen a lot of the footage that will be in the documentary; before he passed away.
When Johnson was asked about viewing a TikTok video of Kobe’s daughters, Bianca and Natalia dancing, he responded, “I think Kobe would have wanted that, right, with them to go on, live a great life and just enjoy yourself, and Vanessa’s the reason for that, and I think she’s got a great village around or people around her to give her that support.”
In case you’ve been living under a rock…Kobe Bryant,41 was on a helicopter on January 26 in Anaheim, California with his 13 year old daughter Gianna; along with seven others who were on the plane who all died from the plane crashing.
Kobe Bryant Left A Strong Legacy
The world is still gravely mourning the loss of Kobe Bryant. Kobe’s legacy was no secret, even if you are not a sports fan…and neither was his abysmal love for his children. A rising basketball star in the footsteps of her father, today, Gianna “Gigi” Bryant should be turning 14 years old. She was so good in her craft that she earned the nickname Mambacita, because of her bright athletic future.
