The Basketball Cooperation has released a statement following the death of Kobe Bryant and his 13 year old daughter Gianna.
They both died amongst seven others in a helicopter crash on the 26th of January 2020. The basketball club wrote :
“We are devastated and have been forever changed by the sudden loss of Kobe Bryant and his daughter, Gianna.
“We send our love to Vanessa, the Bryant family, and to the families of the other passengers. Words cannot express what Kobe means to the Los Angeles Lakers, our fans, and our city. More than a basketball player, he was a beloved father, husband, and teammate. Their love and light will remain in our hearts forever.
The club’s statement comes just after Kobe’s wife Vanessa Bryant broke silence on her husband and daughter’s deaths.
