Spurs: Kobe Inspired All Of Us

Spurs Sports & Entertainment CEO RC Buford today released the following statement on behalf of the Spurs organization regarding the death of Kobe Bryant:

“Kobe inspired all of us. In San Antonio, we were blessed to have enjoyed a front row seat to his greatness. He had an unmatched combination of determination, skill, competitiveness, personality, grace, passion and intelligence. The loss of Kobe and Gianna leaves a giant hole in our hearts. It’s impossible to express the pain we feel for Vanessa and the Bryant family.”

Bryant was among nine people who were on board a helicopter that crashed near Calabasas, California. His 13-year-old daughter was also on the helicopter with him. Bryant played 20 seasons with the Lakers and is widely regarded as one of the best to ever play the game.
