Michael Jordan got really emotional at NBA legend Kobe and Gianna Bryant‘s celebration of life on Monday (Feb.24) at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Jordan was on stage giving a heartfelt speech when he broke down in tears and tried to lighten up the heaviness of the room.

“I took great pride as I got to know Kobe Bryant, that he was just trying to be a better person, a better basketball player. We talked about business. We talked about family. We talked about everything. He was just trying to be a better person,” Michael said.

“I have to look at another crying meme for the next…I told my wife I wasn’t gonna do this…cause I didn’t want to see this for the next three or four years! That is what Kobe Bryant does to me.” The audience went crazy during this moment

For those who don’t know, the “Crying Jordan” meme has been circulating for years after Michael was beyond teary-eyed during his Basketball Hall of Fame induction ceremony on September 11, 2009.
