Just found out Kobe died and all I can think about is that video that went around of him explaining the game to his daughter being a great father and smiling pic.twitter.com/ItRBMDncJ5— we’re fxcked (@BrinckmanCaleb) January 26, 2020
Sad that such a good man like Kobe died. Will never forget the memorable moment when he was teaching his daughter the game he loves. 💔 pic.twitter.com/329NJFMFsM— Brycen Ward (@Brycen_Ward_) January 26, 2020
