It’s truly hard to put into words just how awful the death of Kobe Bryant is for the basketball community. He was as star in every sense of the word, and he’s gone at the age of 41.
It’s just tragic on every single level. I’m confident LeBron James, who just passed Kobe on the scoring list, wasn’t the only one shook up on the Lakers team.

You can also expect reactions like this to continue for at least the next few days. The world of basketball lost a giant on Sunday.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Kobe and the entire Lakers organization.
