Cedric The Entertainer discusses Kobe Bryant's recent passing wearing a Laker robe in honor of his friend. "He was such a leader, an individual, and l think it was one of those things that everybody felt at the time. I really was moved by the response of so many men, like seeing him as a father, understanding the plight that he had, the ups and downs as a young man, and then growing into the guy that he was. But just dynamic as an individual, you see Kobe, he was always a gentleman, always classy. And then his will to win, that personality that had that toughness. To go through an Achilles injury, come on. If I clip my toenail wrong, I'm like, go one without me." He adds, "That spirit is something that I think all of us wish we had. And so, that was just a great loss and his love with his daughter. You start to see so many, again, men really respond to taking pictures and posting their children, and it was just a different thing that I felt we all recognized. Man, he was a great dude."
