    Kobe was at PSG a few days ago. It seems he has a favourite team from each league but he supports Milan above all else.

    Italy = Milan.
    Spain = Barcelona.
    France = PSG?
    England = Spurs?

    I wish we had more celebrity sportsman fans, especially in the NBA. Arsenal have melo, Liverpool have LeBron, I wanted Kevin Durant to support us but he's a snake now... Steph Curry, Russell Westbrook, Kawhi Leonard, Anthony Davis or Paul George would be good ones. Spurs media team get on it!

    I don't think/know if Kobe is a spurs fan but Steve Nash definitely is.

    Yeah Nash is a good one, just a shame that in his pomp we were mid table mediocre. A prime Nash right now in the NBA with something to shout about for Spurs would have been great stateside exposure.

    “He was very impressed with our performance. He remembered as well when he used our sacred shirt. He signed every autograph, posed for every picture. Love to have had him at Wembley,” said Ardiles.

    http://www.squawka.com/news/pochettino-why-i-got-emotional-with-maradona-visiting-spurs/1002053



    Mauricio Pochettino reveals how he was ‘so emotional’ when football icon and former teammate Diego Maradona was a guest at Wembley to witness Spurs‘ 4-1 demolition of Liverpool.
    The Spurs manager was overjoyed in showing Maradona what his side were capable of as they subjected the Reds to a humiliating loss, lifting themselves to third in the table. The Argentine legend, sat in the director’s box, was witness to a dazzling display by Harry Kane and co that finally registered a win at Wembley.

    Maradona was a teammate of Pochettino during their time at Argentinian club Newell’s Old Boys during the final years of his playing career. Goals by Kane, Heung-min Son and Dele Alli that exposed a spineless and shambolic Liverpool defence and a scintillating performance by the Lilywhites at Wembley was the perfect way for Pochettino to pay his dues to the player he admired most.

    “I saw him before in the manager’s room, it was so emotional,” Pochettino said. “It was difficult to let him go because when you are in front of Maradona you want to speak with him, stay with him and share a moment with him.

    “It was so emotional because it has been 20 years since I saw him and it’s fantastic.

    “For me he’s the best player ever in football and he’s massive, he remembered every single moment that we shared when we played at Newell’s Old Boys. That is why it was so fantastic.

    “Off the pitch he’s a great, great person. I am so happy to have met him today. I hope to see him again tomorrow at the Fifa awards.”

    The former Argentina international, naturally, idolised Maradona growing up, adorning his bedroom walls with his posters. Maradona was paraded around Wembley at half-time, where he proudly showed off a new Spurs shirt with his name emblazoned on the back, inciting cheers from the 80,000-strong Wembley faithful.

    Though Pochettino was delighted with his meeting with Maradona, he made sure to acknowledge the most important part of Sunday – the three points and the performance that showed that they were on track to challenge Manchester City for the Premier League title.

    “When you start the game you are focused on the game, with 90,000 around you, you remember nothing, focused for 90 minutes,” he said.

    “But now, I am so pleased. Always it’s good when you enjoy football; he should have enjoyed the game. Of course we are so happy because you win.”
