Kobe Bryant Visits Los Angeles Chargers on Day 1 of Team Activities

NBA: Utah Jazz at Los Angeles Lakers Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

Los Angeles Lakers great and future Hall of Famer Kobe Bryant visited the Los Angeles Chargers today before their first day of Training Camp. It was first brought to everyone's attention by the Chargers official team twitter account:

Chargers players seemed to be big fans of getting to hear Kobe speak:

Dexter McCoil was apparently already a big Kobe fan, but Trovon Reed became a convert today:

The Chargers are working to become more and more a part of Los Angeles. Having Kobe Bryant around the facility is certainly a step in the right direction when it comes to achieving that goal. It will be interesting to see what other prominent Los Angeles sports figures find their way to the Chargers facility in the near future. They do not come much bigger than Kobe, but this is a development that should be fun to follow.

What do you think about Kobe Bryant talking to the team? Do you think he offered anything useful?
