Dwyane went on Instagram live following the news and got emotional talking about Kobe’s death. He wrote this message, “RIP Kobe + GiGi ❤️? I know you said keep going but today we can’t. We love you and we’re gonna miss you brother.”
Kobe’s former teammate, Lamar Odom, wrote an emotional message wondering why his life was spared and not Bryant. He wrote, “I’m still waiting for the media to come out and say wrong report. No way God took my brother this early. I know I been through my own stuff in life with using drugs and not being good to myself. When I went through that Coma situation if God would have came to me and said we would take me and spare Kobe I would have rather that happened. In honor of my brother I’m up at 4am tomorrow to get to the gym! Gigi gone give you buckets!!!! I love you brother ???? @kobebryant
