"Dear Basketball" is an extraordinary animated 2018 Oscar-winning short film, written, produced, and narrated by Kobe Bryant, directed
Veteran animator Glen Keane.
"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 in retirement, he wrote a farewell letter to his teammates, fans, and other players. In his statement, he expressed his love for basketball, his values, and how important is to follow the dream. 

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

The sublime instrumentation of the film 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, after the tragic events of the helicopter crash on a Sunday morning, January 26th, 2020. In the City of Calabazas, Los Angeles Country - the beautiful animated short film takes more relevance, not only for Kobe's passing but because of its motivational content. Unfortunately, the YouTube platform has removed the short film from its digital platform for unknown reasons.

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