Kobe Bryant took some time out of his busy schedule last night to show some support for Team USA head coach Mike Krzyzewski during Duke's NCAA March Madness Sweet 16 game with Oregan.

The 37-year-old took a number of selfies with fans and Buddy Hield of the Oklahoma Sooners took his chance to get a picture with the legend.
Krzyzewski counts Bryant as one of his closest friends and the pair won consecutive gold medals during the Olympic Games of 2008 and 2012.
Their relationship stretches much further than the days of Gold medal success. Krzyzewski tried to recruit Bryant during his time in high school and the shooting guard always said he would have chosen Duke had he not turned pro.
Bryant has just 11 outings remaining in his NBA career as his final game against the Utah Jazz at the Staples Center draws closer.
It has been a tough season for the Lakers and Bryant, who is producing a career-low shooting percentage. However, he will depart the game as one of the true greats.
