Kobe Bryant's former teammate Wayne Ellington said Kobe told him when the Lakers were in Brooklyn in early November that this was going to be his last season. Ellington said he learned a lot from Bryant.

After facing Kobe Bryant for the first time earlier this season, Nets rookie Rondae Hollis-Jefferson shared a private moment with the Lakers future Hall of Famer. Both players grew up near Philadelphia -- Bryant in Lower Merion, Pa. and RHJ in nearby Chester. "It was great just to be in his presence -- to hear from him, and for him to tell me that hes watching, hes noticing, and telling me to keep working hard -- it means the world to me," RHJ said. "It gives you a sense of hope, like you can be something special, and thats all Im trying to be is something special."
