"Dear Basketball" is an extraordinary animated 2018 Oscar-winning short film, written, produced, and narrated by Kobe Bryant directed by veteran animator Glen Keane.
The emotional short "Dear Basketball" is an inspiring love letter to the posterity and a legacy of one of the greatest basketball players in history, Kobe Bryant. 

In 2015, when the star of the L.A. Lakers thought about retirement, he wrote a farewell letter to his teammates, fans, and other players from other teams. In his statement, he expressed his love for basketball, his values, and how important it is to follow the dream.

The best way to say goodbye to the game he loved all his life was by producing a high-quality animated short film and hiring the best people in the industry to do the job. 

The sublime instrumentation is the responsibility of a five-time Oscar winner and a 52 Oscar-nominated composer John Williams ("E.T.," "Star Wars," "Jaws").

Two historical facts: "Dear Basketball" is the first time a professional athlete wins an Oscar. Kobe Bryant becomes the first Afro-American to win that award for the best animated short film.

Now, the beautifully animated film takes more relevance after the tragic events of the helicopter crash on a Sunday morning, January 26th, 2020, in Calabazas, Los Angeles County. 
The animation is important, not only for Kobe's passing but also its motivational content. The athlete's legacy, humanitarianism, and the impact of his actions to the community, and around the world, felt at large.

My deepest condolences to the family, friends, and millions of fans around the world. Kobe Bryant was an inspiring human being with a positive attitude, the spirit of constant improvement, and determination to succeed.
