After all of the coverage that Kobe Bryant received during NBA All-Star Weekend this year, how weird is it going to be next year when Kobe isn’t around? *shudders* It’s going to feel so strange knowing that he’s off somewhere, like, sipping wine while the best basketball players in the world are down in Charlotte, N.C. next season.

Thanks for the memories, Kobe.
