RIP Kobe Bryant

My friend, a legend, husband, father, son, brother, Oscar winner and greatest Laker of all-time is gone. It's hard to accept. Kobe was a leader of our game, a mentor to both male and female players.

He gave his knowledge, time, and talent to tutor so many at the youth level, collegiate level, & NBA & WNBA players. Words can't express the impact that he had on the game of basketball. I know basketball fans all over the world will miss him, especially the City of Los Angeles.

While I shared a personal relationship with Kobe and his family, it is not lost on me the other families who woke up today missing their family members. Let us all continue to pray for the lives that were lost and their families in mourning.
