Four years ago I said goodbye to Kobe’s NBA career. Now I’m saying goodbye to Kobe & his daughter Gianna. This is extremely hard for me as a lifelong Lakers fan; if you want to hear more of my personal thoughts, click H E R E. There has been an overwhelming amount of artistic talent poured out in tribute to Mamba & Mambacita. If you don’t see your art, please know that I only shared a small portion of what I saw online. All of you are incredible, and I know that Kobe & Gigi are looking down with smiles on their faces. 💜🐍💛

“Kobe learned Moonlight Sonata by ear for his wife, and then performed it with a string quartet. This piece encapsulates the tragedy of the loss of Kobe, Gigi, and all of the passengers on board yesterday. He has made a huge impact on me, on LA, and the entire world. His life and legacy will live on by his legacy and the impact he had. We’ll always remember a fearless leader, man of many talents, and great human being on and off of the court.”
