After 12 years of playing in the NBA,Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant finally won the most sought after trophy,the MVP award. In attendance to witness the momentous occasion were his two daughters Gianna and Natalia and his wife Vanessa.This is what Kobe had to say about winning the MVP award:
“I really don’t know what to say to be honest with you. It’s a blessing and such an honor to be here. To receive this award, I can go through a list of thank you’s. My family, they enabled me to be the best I can be.., training everyday and they give up so much to sacrifice for me to be able to train and prepare for games and I’m just very honored and blessed to be here.” Bryant said.
“I couldn’t have won without my players, my teammates. This is a team award. This is not an individual award. This is an award I couldn’ve won on my own. If that was the case I would’ve won when I was averaging 40,” He laughs and continues. “This gets done because we all do it as a union. I can’t thank these guys enough. These are my guys, these are my brothers. Let’s get ready for tomorrow.”
