We want to take a moment and honor a true sports legend, Kobe Bryant. He changed the sports world as we know it and can only imagine what he would have continued to do, especially on the women's side. Here is the transcript of Kobe Bryant's award-winning animated film, Dear Basketball. It was harder to record than we thought - such a perfect good-bye to the sport he loved. We know athletes around the world resonate with this message. Rest In Peace, Black Mamba.
