“I wish you the best with retirement. I know it’s going to be hard to leave the game,” said OBJ in a video posted to Bleacher Report’s Uninterrupted. “You’ve put your blood, sweat, and tears in this, for real.

Beckham has a closer connection to Bryant than most, because Shaquille O’Neal is his godfather. The relationship began over 20 years ago when Odell Beckham Sr. and Shaq were roommates at LSU.
“You really inspired me to be a legend, so thank you, Kobe,” Beckham said before signing off.
