Kobe Bryant Will Become First Athlete To Be Honored By Hollywood’s Legendary Grauman’s Chinese Theater

Kobe Bryant will become the first athlete ever to have his hand and footprints enshrined in front of the world renowned Grauman’s Chinese Theater on February 19, 2011. The ceremony will take place during the 2011 NBA All Star Weekend festivities and will be followed later that evening with a lavish star studded gala event for Bryant, 1,200 VIP guests and select members of the public.


Whether you like Kobe or not, this is pretty big. Grauman’s is usually reserved for Hollywood’s elite and no matter how successful athletes have been they haven’t managed to crack this barrier until now. Congrats to Kobe for making it happen.
