USA Basketball Statement on Kobe Bryant

  • Date:
    Jan 26, 2020

USA Basketball issued the following statement today regarding the passing of Kobe Bryant:
 
USA Basketball has lost a real champion. Women's sports has lost one of their strongest advocates. Professional sports has lost a true legend who used his stature to make a difference in the world. Kobe viewed our women's athletes as role models for his daughter Gigi, for whom we are also grieving. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his wife, Vanessa, the rest of his family and the families of those who also were lost today.
