LeBron James has broken his silence on the tragic death of Kobe Bryant.
In a lengthy Instagram post last night, LeBron wrote that he was “heartbroken and devastated” by the loss of Kobe and his 13-year-old daughter Gianna. He added, “I literally just heard your voice Sunday morning before I left Philly to head back to LA. Didn’t think for one bit in a million years that would be the last conversation we’d have.”
The helicopter crash that killed Kobe, Gianna and seven others came just hours after LeBron passed him for third place on the NBA’s all-time scoring list. LeBron promised to continue Kobe’s legacy.
