One of those congratulating and backing Collins was Los Angeles Lakers’ star Kobe Bryant. Bryant has been active on Twitter ever since he was sidelined with his injury, and he sent out a message to Collins on Monday.

Collins played for the Boston Celtics and Washington Wizards this past season, and even though he did not have a big role in the rotation, he has made a huge impact on the world outside the basketball court.
