"I had courtside seats for the game and after talking to some people Kobe found out that there was an Eagles player in the building, so the meeting was arranged for after the game. He's the second-best basketball player of all time behind Michael Jordan. It was a wow moment for me. It was one of those moments you cherish for the rest of your life. With the offseason well underway, I'm focused on working hard and coming back to be a premier player for the Eagles."
