Today, thousands of mourners will be gathering at the Staples Center in downtown Los Angeles to bid their goodbyes Kobe and Gianna Bryant, who were killed in a January 26 helicopter crash.
Bryant became active in film, television and writing after his retirement in 2016, and even won an Oscar for his “Dear Basketball” animated short film, which was based on a letter he wrote to The Players’ Tribune in November of 2015 announcing his final NBA season.
Check out this amazing video that was put together as a response to Kobe.
"Players come and go, but I will always be here. With the rest of the world, I will miss you."
Sincerely, Basketball 💜💛 pic.twitter.com/VnuAF6jjgf
