Basketball great Kobe Bryant just did something that no other NBA player has done before. He won an Academy Award.
Kobe was the executive producer on the 6 minute animated short titled "Dead Basketball", which is based on a poem he wrote in 2015 announcing his retirement.
During his acceptance speech, Kobe said, “As basketball players, we’re really supposed to shut up and dribble. I’m glad we do a little bit more than that,” which is a not too subtle dig at Fox News host Laura Ingraham who recently attacked LeBron James and Kevin Durant for criticizing President Trump.
So when will Shaq FINALLY get recognized for Kazaam??
