Dwyane Wade gifts Kobe Bryant Netflix subscription

Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant is set to retire after this season, and he’ll have plenty of free time in the near future. Thanks to Dwyane Wade, he’ll also have plenty of opportunities to “Netflix and chill” with his wife, Vanessa.

Bryant played in his final All-Star game on Sunday night, and was treated to a special dinner afterward as well by Wade, Chris Paul and Carmelo Anthony. Kobe was showered with praise as the NBA stars reflected and shared stories about his career, and he also received some gifts as well.

Wade bought Kobe a thoughtful yet inexpensive gift—a one-year subscription to Netflix, according to the AP.

Bryant seemed to really enjoy the celebration, as well as his gifts, even if they weren’t as lavish as you might expect.

“It was really special,” Bryant told The Associated Press on Sunday night after scoring 10 points in his last All-Star appearance, a 196-173 win for the West over the East. “Those are the things you don’t get a chance to hear when you’re competing against each other. To hear those stories now, you have such a deep sense of appreciation and such a brotherhood from all the years of competing against each other. It just felt good.”

Kobe seems like more of a “House of Cards” than an “Orange Is The New Black” guy.
