105-Year-Old Allene Wynn Celebrates Her Birthday By Meeting Kobe Bryant [VIDEO]

Kobe Bryant

At 105 years old, Allene Wynn is most likely the Los Angeles Lakers’ oldest fan. And to celebrate that recent eye-popping birthday, she met Kobe Bryant and the rest of the team.

“It just made me feel good all over to meet [Bryant] in person. I’ve been wanting to meet him for years,” Wynn, who has been following the Lakers since the days of Wilt Chamberlain, explained. “I got to touch him. I shook hands with him and hugged him.”

According to Bryant, the respect was mutual.

“That’s unbelievable, 105 years old,” Bryant said about their meeting. “I don’t think this game did anything to relax her.”

What he was talking about was the Lakers’ matchup Saturday against the lowly New Orleans Hornets, which Wynn watched as a guest of the team. Kobe missed his first 15 shots, only to end up winning the game on a last minute three-pointer.
