Pau Gasol and Others Remember Kobe Bryant on His 44th Birthday

Former Laker teammate Pau Gasol was just one of many players who took to social media Tuesday to remember the late Kobe Bryant on his birthday.

Bryant would have turned 44 on August 23.

“Happy birthday, hermano. Miss you, always,” Gasol tweeted.


“Happy birthday, baby! I love you and miss you so much! #44,” posted Vanessa Bryant.

The Lakers are the subject of a new documentary, “Legacy: The True Story of the LA Lakers,” airing on Hulu.

The documentary follows the rise of the Lakers under Dr. Jerry Buss through the Showtime Era, the Kobe-Shaq three-peat, and more.

LeBron James, Magic Johnson, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Pat Riley, Jeanie Buss, and others are interviewed for the series.

Bryant was an 18-time All-Star, five-time NBA champion, four-time All-Star MVP, two-time Finals MVP, and 2007-08 regular season MVP.

He was also inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame, a member of the 75th Anniversary Team, and an Oscar winner.
