Frank Vogel Got 'Chills' When Staples Center Fans Cheered For Kobe Bryant

So when the former Los Angeles Lakers star dropped by Sunday's game, he was the center of attention. They held their last two opponents to 95.5 points per game and will be hard to beat if they play as well on Sunday night.

The Lakers' 14 blocks are the most they've had in a game since 2002.

"I know he came to a game a year ago", James said.

"Just having him in the building and knowing what he meant to this franchise and L.A. for me and my teammates, what it means to be a part of this Laker Nation and Laker family, it's a lovely thing", James said. "Obviously, he's a legend here & he's been someone who I've been able to watch for a long time". I was one of the kids who had the chance to come out straight out of high school. According to Ryan Ward of ClutchPoints, Davis even had some personal anecdotes about how Bryant has impacted him and his career.

Trae Young scored 31 points and Cam Reddish added 13 as the Hawks lost their third consecutive game and fell for the sixth time in their last seven contests.

"It was insane because he told me his daughter is a huge fan of mine, and I'm one of her favorite players", Young said.

Together, these employees would represent around a third of the 12,500 people WeWork employed at the end of June. As many as 6,000 employees could be laid off, a source told the Times .


Bryant was shown on the big screen with 4:25 left in the first half and rose to acknowledge a standing ovation.

The current Lakers superstar gave the fellow all-time great a hug and a handshake in the first quarter of the win, while the Lakers had a 21-5 lead.

This game against the Lakers was the finale of a five-game Western Conference road trip for the shorthanded Hawks.

"I mean, it's great", Davis said.
