For the first time in over a decade, Kobe Bryant didn’t take the court on Christmas Day, but his teammates weren’t the only ones who were missing the Lakers star when the Miami Heat came to town.
Although LeBron James and Bryant couldn’t square off on the court, as Bryant remains sidelined with a knee injury, the two still found some time to share a moment together. During a break in the game, James made his way over to Bryant and the two hugged it out as James shared a few words with his Western Conference foe.
Check out the nice scene in the GIF below.
