Kobe is on his way out of the league, and many players are paying respect to one of the greatest players of all-time.
Derrick Rose was recently asked about Kobe, and shared his impact on his career and the game of basketball.
"Kobe, he's someone that I've looked up to ever since I came into the league," Rose said. "Someone that I did commercials with. Someone that always gave me advice about my game, just coming into the league. He's seen how hard I worked and for him and all his accolades and his résumé ... I think that he's leaving the game in some good hands."
"You've got [Stephen Curry] playing well, you've got a whole bunch of guys that's right behind him giving their all to the game. And just for Kobe himself, he's going to be a legend no matter what. He's our [generation's] Michael Jordan."
