A sad day for sports fans, and the culture as one of the greatest NBA players of all time, Kobe Bryant, has passed way.
Winning 5 NBA championships, Kobe made 18 All-Star teams during his 20 career with the Lakers. Amongst being a phenomenal basketball player, Kobe was a beloved father, a husband, son, and friend to many.
He was 41 years old.
Fans, teammates, and friends alike- all took to social media to express their love and sadness for G.O.AT. See some responses below.
…HE was ‘different’. Our discussion not long back was about ‘daughters’ AND transitions. He sought to make a DIFFERENCE. He just got started & he created many paths.. Ive said many times as a young-HE was the most manner able ‘athlete’ I ever met. He was DIFFERENT #RIPKOBE248 pic.twitter.com/hdrxcWWVsj
