Video of Anthony Davis, Bradley Beal meeting Kobe Bryant for first time gives us chills

There was a time when Kobe Bryant was the face of the NBA, and a number of young rising stars looked up to him before entering the league.

Apparently, a number of the NBA’s best players fell into that class, which a recent video shows.

A recent video clip has surfaced, showing a young Bradley Beal, Anthony Davis, Austin Rivers and Quinn Cook — all of whom are currently in the NBA — meeting with Bryant near the locker room. And in looking at the elated expressions on their faces, it’s clear they were in awe of the Lakers legend.

Bryant would have turned 42 on Sunday, so a number of tributes were circulated on social media over the weekend.
