Cooper Kupp: Kobe Bryant set the standard for the City of Champions
LOS ANGELES - Cooper Kupp rocked a #24 Kobe Bryant jersey to the Los Angeles Rams Super Bowl LVI victory parade and rally on Wednesday, saying that the late NBA legend set the standard in the City of Champions.
"I'm standing here in this city that knows nothing but championships, we're out here celebrating this championship. Kobe's a part of this. He belongs here. I'll tell you what… he set the standard. All I know: Get back to work. Let's run it back," Kupp said.
