Nominated for an Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film, Dear Basketball takes the letter that Kobe Bryant penned on the eve of his retirement announcement and mixes it with the magic of a custom John Williams score and legendary animator Glen Keane.

The letter by itself is amazing, but when narrated by Kobe himself, then mix in the music from the man who brings Star Wars to life and add the pen of a Disney great – and magic is created.
