Chris Paul to Kobe Bryant: ‘Won’t be the same without you!’

Chris Paul knows the NBA won’t be the same without Kobe Bryant.

The Clippers point guard, who appeared in nine NBA All-Star Games with the Lakers’ legendary shooting guard during their careers, posted an homage to Bryant to Instagram on Monday.

Since '08…it's been an honor and a privilege! Won't be the same without you! #AllStar2016

It’s clear CP3 holds the retiring Bryant in high regard, even though Paul’s 6-year-old son did steal the ball from Kobe during All-Star Weekend.

The West Team did send Bryant off a winner in his final All-Star Game, in which, Paul scored 14 points and added 15 assists.
