Who knew Kobe Bryant was such a big Taylor Swift fan?

Well, he does respect greatness, and regardless of your opinion of her, T. Swift does represent musical greatness. 

Friday night, Swift set a record for the most sold-out performances at the Staples Center with 16, when her 1989 Tour came to Los Angeles. The Black Mamba showed up to present her with her own championship banner at the Staples Center. 

Game respect game.
