“Woke Up In The Middle Of The Night In Tears”: Former Friend of Kobe Bryant is Still in Disbelief Over the Tragic Demise of the Legend
The tragic demise of Kobe Bryant left everyone in tears. Life is very much unpredictable, and when Kobe was with his daughter aboard the helicopter, never in a million years would he have wanted the copter to crash. But such is the harsh reality of life, and one can never really predict when the journey will come to an end.
In his beautiful life, Kobe had made several friends along the way. Apart from his close family, his dear friends would feel the huge void left by the five-time NBA champion. The mamba pursued a similar approach to his off-court problems just as he would face his on-court worries. He always believed in overcoming obstacles in one way or another. Lakers’ GM Rob Pelinka rightly put the value of his friendship in a few words. “In a time like this, where there is a lot of darkness in the world, he is the strongest of friends you can have.”

Then he was picked to play in the NBA Developmental League, now known as the NBA G League.
