RIP Kobe Bryant 😔
I’m crying like we lost family, because we did.
For a lot of the athletes of my generation, Kobe taught us to compete. Kobe taught us to go earn what we want. Kobe taught us to love the process.
Love you Mamba. Prayers to his family. pic.twitter.com/bahyG5rydE

I just met Kobe last wednesday, was in his office talking about our books and how everyday in life is a grind. I don’t believe this.

Just talked to Mike Vick, who knew Kobe from his days in Philly, who said he’s still in disbelief. “Heart sinking” is how he described it. In talking to several people around both teams benches, seems that word has spread to the players and coaching staffs about the Kobe news.
