Video: Kobe Bryant at Lower Merion

Tonight at Lower Merion High School, the gymnasium was dedicated to Kobe Bryant. Bryant, in town with the Los Angeles Lakers for Friday night's game against the 76ers, was present along with teammate Derek Fisher. Both Bryant and Fisher spoke to the crowd of approximately 4,000 (that's my own approximation) along with a half dozen other speakers including Bryant's high school coach, Bryant's high school teammate, and Bryant's English teacher.

You can check out the video of Fisher announcing Bryant, which should be embedded below. We'll have more tomorrow after the Sixers/Lakers game, which is the get-away game for the Sixers before hitting the road until Jan. 3. If you want to follow on Twitter, click here: Deep Sixer.
