Kobe Bryant To Make Cement Prints At Hollywood Landmark

 

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant has championship rings and an MVP trophy, but he’s about to get an honor usually reserved for the stars of Hollywood.

Bryant will become the first athlete to have a hand and foot print ceremony at Grauman’s Chinese Theater in Hollywood.

Representatives for the theater announced Thursday that Bryant will have the ceremony setting his hands and feet in cement as part of the NBA’s All-Star Weekend festivities on Feb. 19, the day before the All-Star game at Staples Center in Los Angeles.

More than 200 Hollywood luminaries including John Wayne, Marilyn Monroe and Brad Pitt have had their hands and feet set in cement in front of the Hollywood landmark.

    I don’t get it. Why? This is not the place to immortalize athletes. Now if you start with Kobe, it won’t stop with Kobe.

    Now Kevin Costner can now be inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame for “Field of Dreams”.
