Las Vegas Raiders quarterback Derek Carr was a fan of Kobe Bryant when the prior NBA star who was leading the Los Angeles Lakers on the court. Carr became friends with the basketball star after Bryant retired in 2016. Carr will hail Bryant who died Jan/26/2020 in a helicopter crash along with eight others, this season by tiring a sleeve on his left arm in his games.
“What would be a cool way to honor Kobe Bryant? He always wore an arm sleeve on his right arm I can’t wear one on my right passing arm, so I was like, ‘You know what, I’ll wear one on my left arm.’ It’s really just to honor Kobe.”
“This is a personal thing. I don’t care what anybody else thinks about it this is for me,” Carr said on a Zoom call with reporters Tuesday, Aug/04/2020.Carr, 29, said Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Darius Slay was also going to pay tribute to the late Bryant who would have turned 42 on Aug. 23 this season and presume other NFL players would also.
