Bryant to get cement prints at Hollywood landmark
Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant has championship rings and
an MVP trophy, but he’s about to get an honor usually reserved for
the stars of Hollywood.
Bryant will become the first athlete to have a hand and foot
print ceremony at Grauman’s Chinese Theater in Hollywood.
Representatives for the theater announced Thursday that Bryant
will have the ceremony setting his hands and feet in cement as part
of the NBA’s All-Star Weekend festivities on Feb. 19, the day
before the All-Star game at Staples Center in Los Angeles.
More than 200 Hollywood luminaries including John Wayne, Marilyn
Monroe and Brad Pitt have had their hands and feet set in cement in
front of the Hollywood landmark.
