Former basketball player and two-times NBA champion, Chris Bosh, penned down a new letter after watching the NBA Bubble games last week and revealed what Kobe Bryant would have thought on this year’s championship and the Disney organization.
NBA games suspended in March due to a coronavirus pandemic. After the coronavirus shut down the NBA season along with everything else, basketball is finally set to return Wednesday at the ESPN Wide World of Sports complex, inside Disney World in Orlando, Florida.
In his letter titled ‘The Last Chip,’ Bosh has shared his thoughts about the NBA Bubble games and mentioned the importance of this year’s championship. He wrote:
“So if my career hadn’t ended because of my health, and I were still in the league at 36 years old, I’m not sure if I’d have gone to the Bubble. I don’t even know how I’d be able to focus on winning games if I did go.
Some people are saying this year’s championship is going to have an asterisk next to it. Hell no. It’s legitimate—if anything, winning a championship during a pandemic will go down as one of the biggest achievements in the history of the game.
And the ways teams have been coming together to support Black Lives Matter, on and off the court, not only in the NBA but in the WNBA, too? With this many people watching, you can’t deny how big an influence that will have.”
The 36-year-old former basketballer said that he has been thinking a lot about Kobe Bryant lately and discussed what late Los Angeles Lakers legend would have thought on NBA in Disney. He said that if Kobe were at Bubble in Orlando, he would continue his training routine. However, he added that Kobe was a Disney fan and would not hold himself to fun at Disney. Bosh wrote:
“I’ve also been thinking a lot about Kobe lately: what he’d make of all this, how he’d inspire the rest of us. I can’t help but imagine that despite everything, he’d have loved this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to devote himself fully to basketball—shooting, like he always did, as early as 4 a.m. and as late as midnight—though I can’t imagine he could have refrained from heading over to the amusement park for some rides. Kobe straight up loved Disney.”
