Since arriving in the City of Angels, the Eagles have received nothing but love. First came the Mike Trout bobbleheads courtesy of the Baseball star and die hard Eagles fan himself and what came today was nothing short of special.
A motivational talk from none other than Kobe Bryant. Yep, Kobe. Bryant.

It’s long been known that the Philadelphia native is an Eagles fan, but to go out of his way to visit the team upon their visit to L.A and then give them a team talk? That’s something different.
This was an amazing opportunity for the Eagles to learn from one of the all-time basketball greats. Someone who has been there and done it all and experienced the taste of lifting a Championship. There may be no figure better suited to lift this team up after their loss to Seattle.
