Piqué stresses on the competitive ambition of Lakers' ace

On the night of Wednesday to Thursday, the Staples Center will witness the last game of Kobe Bryant's career, one of the best to have ever played in basketball history. The Utah Jazz will be Lakers rival before the career of a player that has always shown his admiration for Barça come to a close.

The players of Barça's first team also wanted to participate in the farewell video to Bryant made by Nike. Javier Mascherano, Gerard Piqué, Andrés Iniesta and Neymar are the four footballers featuring in this video with other legends from the world of sports.

"He always wanted to be better than himself", Neymar says. "Having 5 rings and wanting 6", stresses Piqué about Kobe's competitive nature. These are some of the most stiking words of this video dedicated to a legend that will soon hang up his boots. The NBA won't be the same without Kobe Bryant.
