Kobe Bryant hangs out with Derrick Rose’s son before game

Monday February 22nd, 2016

Kobe Byrant visited Chicago for the final time in his NBA career on Sunday night, and there to greet him was a packed United Center, his old friend and teammate Pau Gasol and Derrick Rose’s adorable son P.J.

P.J. first burst into the national spotlight with some hilarious faces in a postgame conference during last season’s playoffs, which his father immortalized in T-shirt form this season, and know he is hanging out with the Black Mamba.

Pregame vibes
