Michael Jordan is still grieving the loss of his friend Kobe Bryant and says he can't bring himself to delete the final text messages he received from the Lakers legend before his death. His last communication with Bryant was on Dec. 8, 2019, 49 days before Kobe and his daughter, Gianna, were killed in a helicopter crash.
Jordan told ESPN's Jackie MacMullen the convo was simple ... Kobe complimented his new tequila, asked about his family, and commented on coaching Gianna's girl's basketball team.
"This tequila is awesome," Jordan said Kobe texted after he had sent over a bottle.
"Thank you, my brother," Jordan says he responded.
"Yes, sir. Family good?" Kobe replied.
"All good. Yours?"
Jordan continued ... "Happy holidays, and hope to catch up soon. Coach Kobe??!"
"Ah, back at you, man," MJ says Kobe wrote back. "Hey, coach, I'm sitting on the bench right now, and we're blowing this team out. 45-8."
Jordan says the messages -- particularly the one about dominating with Gianna's team -- mean a lot to him -- explaining, "I just love that text because it shows Kobe's competitive nature."
Jordan added, "I don't know why, but I just can't delete it."
