Novak Djokovic Rumors
Bill Oram: Novak Djokovic pays tribute to Kobe Bryant after winning Australian Open: “This is a reminder to all of us that we should stick together more than ever. Be with our families, stay close to the people that love you, that care about you.”
An emotional Novak Djokovic paid tribute to Kobe Bryant as he continued his march through the Australian Open draw with a straight-sets victory over Milos Raonic in the quarter-finals. Djokovic was good friends with the basketball star, who was killed in a helicopter crash on Sunday, and came out for the match on Rod Laver Arena wearing a jacket bearing the initials KB, Bryant’s numbers eight and 24 and a heart.
Novak Djokovic: My heart truly mourns over the news today. Kobe was a great mentor and friend to me. You and your daughter will live forever in our hearts. There are not enough words to express my deepest sympathies to the Bryants and every family suffering from this tragedy. RIP my friend
Now, it’s safe to say Kerr’s Warriors are doing just fine. But would he give any of the ATP World Tour’s players a shot? “Gosh. I might go with Djokovic,” Kerr said. “I think he can guard anybody. He moves his feet extremely well. Side to side, I think he can stay in front of anybody. I think he’d be good in the fast break. I’d like to see him on a basketball court.”
