Erschütterung nach Tod von NBA-Legende Kobe Bryant
Der tragische Hubschrauber-Absturz, bei dem NBA-Legende Kobe Bryant sowie acht weitere Menschen ums Leben gekommen sind, hat kollektive Bestürzung und Fassungskosigkeit ausgelöst. Der US-Basketballer wurde 41 Jahre alt - mit seiner Frau Vanessa hatte er vier Töchter. Auch seine 13 Jahre alte Tochter Gianna Maria war unter den Todesopfern.
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.— Barack Obama (@BarackObama) 26. Januar 2020
Kobe was so much more than an athlete, he was a family man. That was what we had most in common. I would hug his children like they were my own and he would embrace my kids like they were his. His baby girl Gigi was born on the same day as my youngest daughter Me’Arah. pic.twitter.com/BHBPN5Wq8V— SHAQ (@SHAQ) January 26, 2020

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....— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 26, 2020
Michael Jordan (über eine Sprecherin): "Worte können den Schmerz nicht ausdrücken, den ich fühle. Ich habe Kobe geliebt - er war wie ein Bruder für mich. Wir haben sehr oft gesprochen und ich werde diese Unterhaltungen sehr vermissen."
I’m sad to hear that we lost one of our greats. @kobebryant was one of the greatest athletes and was such an inspiration to so many including myself.
