Rest In Peace to Kobe Bryant, One of the Greatest Competitors to ever walk this planet!! It felt like a dream hearing you speak to the team in 2018 and also got to fanboy after, you inspired so many and will never be forgotten! My prayers are with the Bryant family and the family of the others who also passed in the crash. #RIPtoKobeBryant #KobeTheLegend #NeverForgotten #PrayersUp----

I still apply the lessons you preached that day, the Black Mamba Mentality. This one hurts that you’re gone. R.I.P Kobe ---- #legendsneverdie
