LeBron James passed Kobe Bryant as 3rd leading scorer in NBA just few hours before Kobe had an helicopter crash, in which him, his daugher Gianna and 7 other people lost their lives.
LeBron, who had a phone call night before the crash, was seen crying after landing in Los Angeles ans hearing the news, and he recently made an Instagram post honouring Kobe:
“I’m Not Ready but here I go. Man I’m sitting here trying to write something for this post but every time I try, I begin crying again just thinking about you, niece Gigi and the friendship/bond/brotherhood we had! I literally just heard your voice Sunday morning before I left Philly to head back to L.A. Didn’t think for one bit in a million years that would be the last conversation we’d have. WTF!! I’m heartbroken and devastated my brother!!” James added. “Man I love you big bro. My heart goes to Vanessa and the kids. I promise you I’ll continue your legacy man! You mean so much to us all here especially #LakerNation and it’s my responsibility to put this shit on my back and keep it going!! Please give me the strength from the heavens above and watch over me! I got US here! There’s so much more I want to say but just can’t right now because I can’t get through it! Until we meet again my brother!! #Mamba4Life #Gigi4Life
Kobe Bryant’s last Twitter and Instagram posts were Kobe’s praises towards LeBron, for passing him as 3rd in All-time NBA points.
Rest in Peace, Kobe and Gianna Bryant.
