One of Hip-Hop’s biggest sports fans (and front runners) Lil Wayne caught up with The Los Angeles Times and talked about his favorite player, Kobe Bryant. Although he frequents Miami Heat games, Lil Wayne says that the Los Angeles Lakers have been his favorite team since he started watching basketball. Moreover, he spoke on his appreciation for the franchise player, Kobe Bryant. 

“He’s inspired not only songs, but he’s inspired me in life in general just the way he attacks things, the way he never backs down, the way he fights through injury,” Lil Wayne said.

“Not only do he fight through injury, and not only do he play through injury, he excel through injury. I take those type of things and I just apply them to my everyday life.” Wayne famously named a song after Kobe Bryant a little bit over two years ago, to “inspire him to chase another championship,” which he did in 2010.
