Kobe Bryant’s tweet will melt Peyton Manning’s heart

From one legend to another.

So many similarities exist between Kobe Bryant and Peyton Manning. Both are all-time greats, and forever in the conversation for the best (or second best) in the history of their respective position. 

On Sunday, the Denver Broncos quarterback won the Super Bowl in what might be the final game of Manning’s career. Bryant won’t have the same luxury of walking into the sunset with a ring, as the Los Angeles Lakers are one of the worst teams in the league. But that didn’t stop him from sending out a congratulatory tweet following Sunday’s huge win:

It’s always great to see two athletes who spent over a decade at the top of their profession interact and show admiration. 

Both these guys are hyper-competitive and know how it feels to win it all. Both are legends. This tweet is amazing.
