Fans completely surrounded Bryant everywhere he went, and one fan just couldn’t take apparent awesomeness that is Kobe Bryant, considering he completely broke down in tears.
The Nanfang translated some of what the overwhelmed man said after he saw Bryant for the first time:
“After seeing Kobe I was overcome with excitement. I couldn’t stop crying. I kept crying.”
This poor guy was so excited that he just kept crying and crying and, well…. crying! It even looks like the little kid in the background is wondering if everything is okay.
It would seem like Kobe Bryant has the special ability to make even grown men cry. Check out the video above!
