Kobe Bryant's retirement is a big deal for basketball fans who watch NBA games for years on end, and it's no exception for Chinese fans, according to China Daily.
Several students in Jilin province showed their respect and love for Bryant by drawing a picture of him on an outdoor basketball field covered by snow.
It took four hours for the students to pull off the detailed work on Dec 6, using simple tools such as brooms and buckets. The "Forever 24" indicates his jersey number.
The students drew the picture right after Kobe, one of the most popular stars among over 300 million basketball fans in China, announced his retirement after playing for the Lakers for over twenty years.
