Sportwereld in shock na plotselinge overlijden Kobe Bryant

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, topscorer aller tijden in de NBA, reageert vol ongeloof.

Most people will remember Kobe as the magnificent athlete who inspired a whole generation of basketball players. But I will always remember him as a man who was much more than an athlete.

"Er zijn geen woorden die de pijn kunnen beschrijven die ik voel door deze tragedie", schrijft voormalig topbasketballer Shaquille O'Neal. 'Shaq' vormde jarenlang een gouden duo met Bryant bij de Lakers en won samen twee titels met Kobe. "Ik ben mijn nichtje Gigi en mijn broer Kobe Bryant kwijt. Ik hou van jullie, jullie zullen gemist worden. Ik leef mee met de Bryant-familie en de families van de andere passagiers aan boord."

Kobe was a legend on the court and just getting started in what would have been just as meaningful a second act. To lose Gianna is even more heartbreaking to us as parents. Michelle and I send love and prayers to Vanessa and the entire Bryant family on an unthinkable day.

Kobe Bryant, despite being one of the truly great basketball players of all time, was just getting started in life. He loved his family so much, and had such strong passion for the future. The loss of his beautiful daughter, Gianna, makes this moment even more devastating....
