Are We Getting A KOBE BRYANT Documentary In The Near Future?

Clamor for a documentary featuring the late Kobe Bryant intensified immediately after the release of Michael Jordan's The Last Dance. And it seems like the idea is not far-fetched.

Los Angeles Lakers announcer John Ireland revealed in an ESPN podcast titled Mason & Ireland that Kobe had a film crew "following us everywhere" during the superstar's last two seasons in the NBA. "Don't you think if this Last Dance takes off the way it has started—and is one of the most watched documentary of all time—considering the tragic way that Kobe's life ended, that all that has to come out one day?"

Ireland's statement does coincide with 2015 reports that the hardcourt icon, who was considering retirement, hired a film crew to document the last years of his career as a professional basketball player. At that time, sports writer Howard Beck wrote, "[Bryant] did hire a film crew to track him all season, filming every move and collecting sound bites in quiet moments. No documentary is planned, Bryant told me. But don’t be surprised if we see one if this truly is the end."
