Just started watching it. Jordan's speech was great.

Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there wondering, fearing, Doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before;

It looked like almost every single noteable NBA player were there. Current and former.

They never showed him, but at one point Diana Taurasi made the comment that "Gigi has a fallaway, turnaround jumper... at 10yo. I mean Lebron just now figured that out." and when she said it she looked down and gestured like she was talking to him.

Edit: Although after hearing his statement about the memorial and 'just trying to move on,' I don't know if he attended or not. I kind of think if he was there, they would have shown him.

I read somewhere he requested not to be filmed and there was a picture going around that he was sitting behind AD. Not sure if it was him or not.

IDK... There were empty seats directly behind AD, but Ron Artest was wearing a black hoodie and sitting behind Phil, who was sitting a couple seats down from AD.
A lot of people thought Ron was LeBron...

I honestly don't think LeBron made it. Maybe he was supposed to sit behind AD, but I don't think there's any way he wouldn't have been filmed by someone if he was there.

Although that kid in the foreground could be Bronny... Might be Shaq's kid too though.

Edit: Here's another shot... Looks like Danny Green was behind AD. I still don't see LeBron

Image

And that's definitely Shaqs kid not Bronny

Yeah i believe they would have shown Lebron. The camera focused on many people , some people multiple times, even those we would feel have less association to Kobe, so i would assume they would have at least show lebron once or twice but they never did.

I'm not sure if this has made it's way here, but this art print is pretty special. Thought you might want to see it. I don't have any stake in it or work for Sideshow or anything like that, I just really like it a lot.

I watched Episode 1 of The Final Ring. Must admit I'm disappointed these are only 10 minute episodes
RIP Kobe :cry: :cry:
