Jordan also touched on how it came as a surprise to many that the two who were fierce rivals on the court were actually close friends.

An excerpt from the speech reads:

Maybe it surprised people that Kobe and I were very close friends. But we were very close friends. Kobe was my dear friend, he was like a little brother. Everyone always wanted to talk about the comparisons between him and I. 
I just wanted to talk about Kobe. You know, all of us have brothers, sisters, little brothers, little sisters who, for whatever reason, always tend to get in your stuff, your closet, your shoes, everything. It was a nuisance if I can say that word.

The talented Kobe Bryant arrived on the NBA scene in 1996 at the age of and was openly determined to surpass the achievements of the six-time champion Michael Jordan who played for the Chicago Bulls. The two played against each other in the late 1990s and early 2000s before Jordan retired.
