Kobe Bryant gives pep talk to Eagles players

New, comments

Mamba.

With the Philadelphia Eagles being out in Los Angeles this week ahead of their game versus the Rams, one famous Eagles fan couldn’t help but stop in to check in on his favorite NFL team.

Actually, he did more than just check in. He served as a motivational speaker prior to the team’s Friday practice.

Yes, I’m talking about former Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant.

A number of Eagles players posted clips of Kobe speaking to them on their Instagram stories. Pretty cool for the guys to get a pep talk from an accomplished player prior to a really big game.

Kobe, a Lower Merion native, has never been shy about his Eagles fandom. Well, except maybe recently. But he said there’s a reason behind that.

It’s kinda funny how hospitable Los Angeles has been to the Eagles this week. The Angels have allowed the Eagles to practice in their baseball stadium. Kobe came to motivate his favorite team.

And this is all leading up to Eagles fans likely taking over the Coliseum on Sunday.

It’s been a nice home away from home for the Eagles.
