Who Said: Friends Hang Sometimes Banners Hang Forever

In referencing banners, Kobe seemingly is calling out the World Champion banners that he helped secure for the Lakers. Above the team's championship banners are displayed in the Los Angeles Staples Center
‘It’s like, ‘This dude is nuts.’ But when you grow up, I loved the game so much. It wasn’t on purpose to be a bad friend or not to be as good of a friend. It takes time to do that. It takes a lot of energy to do that.
‘Consciously, all my energy was focused on one thing. It’s like, friends, I have friends that have known me since I was 11.
‘They know that that’s how I am. But nine times out of 10, that’s how they are too. Because they’re as driven at what they do as what I am. It works out.’
Kobe Bryant, who is the Lakers all time leading scorer, has yet to comment about trademarking ‘Friends Hang Sometimes Banners Hang Forever.’
