Michael Jordan has paid tribute to Kobe Bryant in the wake of his passing, describing him as ‘like a little brother’.
Bryant, 41, and his daughter Gianna, 13, were among the nine people who died in a helicopter crash on January 26.
I am in shock over the tragic news of Kobe’s and Gianna’s passing. Words can’t describe the pain I’m feeling. I loved Kobe – he was like a little brother to me. We used to talk often, and I will miss those conversations very much.
He was a fierce competitor, one of the greats of the game and a creative force. Kobe was also an amazing dad who loved his family deeply – and took great pride in his daughter’s love for the game of basketball.
Yvette joins me in sending my deepest condolences to Vanessa, the Lakers organisation and basketball fans around the world.” the statement released by Michael Jordan Manager read.
