Kobe Bryant’s poem ‘Dear Basketball’ was written as an announcement of the Lakers star’s retirement from basketball.
Bryant’s emotional connection to the game is explored in the letter, which is written in the style of a poem divided into stanzas. He tells how he discovered it as a youngster and then worked hard to do the sport justice. His passion for basketball is evident in every line of ‘Dear Basketball.’ Bryant then announces his resignation at the end of the poem/letter.
