Kobe Bryant won every trophy on offer during his NBA career. Two years after retirement he can add an Oscar to his case.
Bryant and animator Glen Keane picked up Best Animated Short at Sunday’s Academy Awards for “Dear Basketball,” the short film based on the poem Bryant wrote to announce his retirement.
“As basketball players we’re really supposed to shut up and dribble, but I’m glad we do a little bit more than that,” said Bryant.
“Dear Basketball” is just under four minutes long, including an additional minute of credits. You can watch the short film in its entirety below:

Mitchell has made this a two-man race after a monstrous two-month stretch. He was able to grab back-to-back Rookie of the Month awards in the Western Conference while leading all rookies in points with Cheap Custom Baseball Jerseys 19.6 per game. That average comes with a 16.80 player efficiency rating (sixth among qualified rookies), and Cheap Dream Team Jerseys Mitchell’s usage rate of 29.0 is 19th in the entire league right behind Kevin Durant, Blake Griffin and Anthony Davis.
What makes Mitchell’s rookie year so impressive is that he has become the primary scorer for a Jazz team that is competing for a playoff spot in the Western Conference. Losing Gordon Hayward in the offseason left the Jazz without a source for offensive creation when everything breaks down. Mitchell has somehow filled that void in his first season.
Mitchell was a highly-rated prospect coming out of Louisville, but no one could have predicted the numbers he has put up this year. We give a narrow edge to Simmons for his full season of work, but there’s a fair argument for Mitchell in the top spot.
