Kobe Bryant is a retired, washed-up, former Hollywood star. He now spends his days basking in the Los Angeles sun and making the occasional public appearance.
Ayden is a young boy who idolizes Bryant. He was recently on his way to meet Bryant at an event, but the Black Mamba left before Ayden got there.
Ah, the power of the social media tag. Ayden's mother posted the above video of her son crying, and tagged Kobe's wife, Vanessa Bryant. Vanessa Bryant arranged a make-up meeting. During Bryant's downtime on a commercial set Tuesday, he hung out with Ayden.

I'm so sorry I couldn't meet you at the commercial shoot today but I'm happy Ayden was able to meet my husband. I'm so happy I was able to help make Ayden's dream come true. @cali_coupons11
Even though he keeps missing his shots, Bryant keeps giving Ayden the ball and Ayden keeps shooting.
He's just like his hero!
