LeBron James is one of the many who are deeply affected by the tragic news of Kobe Bryant’s sudden and shocking passing. The mourning basketball player was reportedly seen breaking down in tears over losing the fellow legend.
As you’ve probably heard, earlier today, January 26, Kobe Bryant was declared dead alongside his 13 year old daughter and 7 other people after the helicopter they were on crashed.
Now, there are eyewitness reports of the fact that LeBron James was in tears upon exiting his Los Angeles Lakers plane and was so distraught over the horrible news that he was receiving the comfort of two other people at the time.
They were apparently holding him tight as LeBron could not help but break down because of the huge emotional pain he was experiencing.
It’s good to hear that the 35 year old star is receiving help from others as far as dealing with this terrible loss is concerned.
His display of grief comes after Kobe congratulated LeBron for passing him on the NBA’s all-time scoring leaderboard, only one day before his death.
The late NBA star wrote: ‘Continuing to move the game forward @KingJames. Much respect my brother.’
Furthermore, another one of Kobe’s teammates, Shaquille O’Neal, expressed his immense sadness over losing him and his second born daughter, Gianna, in a post on social media: ‘There’s no words to express the pain I’m going through with this tragedy of losing my niece Gigi and my brother @kobebryant. I love you and you will be missed. My condolences go out to the Bryant family and the families of all the other passengers on board. I’M SICK RIGHT NOW.’
Kevin Lowe also tweeted: ‘Please no. Please god no. It can’t be true,’ obviously in disbelief.
Similarly, Dwyane Wade expressed his desperation for a miracle, writing: ‘Nooooooooooo God please No!’
The cause of the crash is still under investigation.
