Kobe Bryant showered with “Ko-be” chants in Boston

The Kobe Bryant farewell tour is in full swing, and the Lakers superstar received a warm embrace in Boston on Wednesday night during the team’s 112-104 win over the Celtics.

It speaks volumes about Celtics fans, who may have a bad reputation but still showed love for Kobe, even though he has had their team’s number in the past.

The praise started before the game during player introductions.

But it didn’t stop there. Late in the game, with the Lakers looking to close the game out, “Ko-be” chants broke out in the crowd.
