Kobe Bryant said that the Los Angeles Galaxy's potential signing of Chicharito is important for the MLS landscape.
Chicharito is currently in talks with the Galaxy.
"It's a beautiful thing. For MLS and for Los Angeles, it is important to have very competitive stars. For MLS to have a great name like Chicharito, it is very important for the game," said Bryant.
Bryant added that Chicharito's signing would continue to shift the mindset of the league.
"When the league first started, we [MLS] were looking at bringing stars that were at the end of their careers. Now you are looking at MLS going and bringing stars in their prime. That changes the game drastically."
