Austin Reaves is one of the most talked-about and beloved stars for the Los Angeles Lakers.
Fans already cherish him because of his on-court demeanor, clutch plays, and fierce competitiveness.
But they will love him even more after learning about what he did for Kobe Bryant’s nephew.
On the All The Smoke show on Showtime, host Matt Barnes opened up about a favor Reaves recently did for him.
Shaya Bryant, Kobe Bryant’s sister, reached out to Barnes and informed him that her son, Logan, was a major Reaves fan.
As a gift, Reaves recorded a personal message for the young birthday boy, who broke down in tears when he received it.
Austin Reaves is such a real one for this 🙏

As if Lakers fans couldn’t adore Reaves anymore.
This is just the latest piece of good news about the young shooting guard.
Weeks ago, he re-signed with the Lakers after a breakout season.
Reaves put up 13 points on 52.9% in his second year, upping that total to 16.9 points during his first playoff run.
He began his time with the Lakers as an undrafted question mark.
He has now become a reliable starter and it’s assumed that he will have an even bigger role within the team next season.
Nothing has been announced but some reports state head coach Darvin Ham is contemplating running plays with Reaves as the point guard at times.
This would make sense because he has great chemistry with other players and has become a very intelligent, unselfish athlete.
Reaves has not only become a pivotal part of the team and its recent turnaround.
He has also become a big part of its culture too.
His personal video to Bryant’s nephew is further proof of that.NEXT: Austin Reaves Makes Clear Statement On Russell Westbrook As A Teammate
