As the Emmy’s rolled on last night, Los Angeles Lakers legend Kobe Bryant chimed in with his own congratulations to HBO’s “Game of Thrones” as it set the record for all-time Emmy wins with 38, adding 11 more to its collection Sunday night.
Bryant was then asked by a follower who his favorite character on the popular fantasy show is. Bryant responded with Arya Stark.
Bryant having an affinity for Stark isn’t surprising. A loner with a sense of vengeance, unafraid of consequences with her words, Stark provides the perfect totem for Bryant, especially as she’s a building hero of the series.
Bryant also revealed that the “Winds of Winter” episode is his personal favorite. The Lakers legend retired after last season following 20 seasons. He’s spent his early retirement starting a venture capital firm and getting ready for the birth of his third daughter.
