Kobe Bryant sent a special birthday gift to Kevon Edwards, the brother of Jordan Edwards, the unarmed 15-year-old who was fatally shot by a Dallas police officer while leaving a party last month.
The former NBA star mailed Kevon a signed Lakers jersey and two pairs of his signature shoes, to help him celebrate his 17th birthday.
Kevon was reportedly in the car with Jordan when an officer opened fire, striking Jordan in the head.

5.3 percent odds of No. 1 pick 鈥?Boy, could the Knicks use some good news. Phil Jackson is battling Carmelo Anthony in the media, and the former has stated he wants Melo to waive his no-trade clause, Kristaps Porzingis reportedly skipped his exit meeting with members of the franchise’s brass and coach Jeff Hornacek has admitted players don’t like running the triangle offense. There are few opportunities in the NBA that represent hope and good fortune as much as the NBA Draft lottery.
Granted, New York’s odds of winning are slim, but the reward would be their choice of one of several potential All-Star caliber players, likely Markelle Fultz.
Derrick Rose and Brandon Jennings will become free agents in the offseason and the Knicks could use a lead guard to put alongside Anthony and Porzingis, if one or both remain on the team. New York is a city of stars, and Markelle Fultz could be the next one.
