It’s no secret that Pau Gasol and Kobe Bryant share an unbreakable bromance.

Even since Gasol left the Los Angeles Lakers, the former teammates have remained close and competitive.

On Sunday, before playing the Chicago Bulls at the United Center for the final time, the Black Mamba was introduced by his old friend. He seemed genuinely touched.

In a season full of Kobe tributes, this one rings among the most genuine, heartfelt gestures we’ve seen.
