Dear Basketball

我每时每刻都能想到科比

Dear Basketball,

From the moment  

I started rolling my dad’s tube socks  

And shooting imaginary  

Game-winning shots  

In the Great Western Forum  

I knew one thing was real:

I fell in love with you.

A love so deep I gave you my all —  

From my mind & body  

To my spirit & soul.


As a six-year-old boy  

Deeply in love with you  

I never saw the end of the tunnel.  

I only saw myself  

Running out of one.


And so I ran.  

I ran up and down every court  

After every loose ball for you.  

You asked for my hustle  

I gave you my heart  

Because it came with so much more.  


I played through the sweat and hurt  

Not because challenge called me  

But because YOU called me.  

I did everything for YOU  

Because that’s what you do  

When someone makes you feel as  

Alive as you’ve made me feel.  


You gave a six-year-old boy his Laker dream  

And I’ll always love you for it.  

But I can’t love you obsessively for much longer.  

This season is all I have left to give.  

My heart can take the pounding  

My mind can handle the grind  

But my body knows it’s time to say goodbye.  


And that’s OK.  

I’m ready to let you go.  

I want you to know now  

So we both can savor every moment we have left together.  

The good and the bad.  

We have given each other  

All that we have.   


And we both know, no matter what I do next  

I’ll always be that kid  

With the rolled up socks  

Garbage can in the corner  

:05 seconds on the clock  

Ball in my hands.  

5 … 4 … 3 … 2 … 1  


Love you always,  

Kobe
