The Alabama Crimson Tide are one of the top programs in the nation, and their recent run of dominance continues to draw attention.

That means big-time celebrities want to be around the program, and on Thursday, one of the greatest winners in NBA history stopped by practice.

As you can see in the photo below, retired Los Angeles Laker Kobe Bryant dropped in on the practice session to speak to players:

Kobe won five titles with the Lakers, so he’s no stranger to success, and his mentality on the court and off it was legendary.

It’s no wonder why coach Nick Saban wanted to have Bryant around, and it’s safe to say the players learned a lot from the champion.
