Dear Basketball,
From the moment I started rolling my dad's tube socks and shooting imaginary game-winning shots in the Great Western Forum, I knew one thing was real: I fell in love with you. A love so deep I gave you my all - From my mind & body, to my spirit & soul. As a six-year-old boy, deeply in love with you, I never saw the end of the tunnel. I only saw myself running out of one. And so I ran. I ran up and down every court, after every loose ball for you. You asked for my hustle. I gave you my heart. Because it came with so much more. I played through the sweat and hurt, not because challenge called me, but because YOU called me. I did everything for YOU because that's what you do when someone makes you feel as alive as you've made me feel. You gave a six-year-old boy his Laker dream and I'll always love you for it. But I can't love you obsessively for much longer. This season is all I have left to give. My heart can take the pounding. My mind can handle the grind. But my body knows it's time to say goodbye. And that's OK. I'm ready to let you go. I want you to know now, so we both can saver every moment we have left together. The good and the bad. We have given each other all that we have. And we both know, no matter what I do next, I'll always be that kid with the rolled-up socks, garbage can in the corner, 5 seconds on the clock, ball in my hands...
5 ... 4 ... 3 ... 2 ... 1
Love you always,

We'd love to hear your thoughts on this short animated film!

''Our hearts and prayers go out to Vanessa and her family. Kobe and Gianna were the most beautiful picture of a father's love for his daughter. We were so honored to work with Kobe and even from time to time be surrounded by his wonderful family while making 'Dear Basketball'. Words fail us... but we will never forget such a blessing.''

Glen Keane

''They doubted a kid could make it in the NBA and he proved them wrong. They doubted he could win a championship and he proved them wrong. They doubted he could make movies and he won an Oscar. Like all great artists, Kobe Bryant proved the doubters wrong.''
