LeBron James Tearfully Reacts To Death Of Kobe Bryant

LeBron James tearfully reacted to the death of Kobe Bryant on Sunday.

James was known to be a huge fan of Bryant’s and the pair reportedly grew closer when he came to Los Angeles.

As such, it was no surprise to see James react in emotional fashion upon learning of Bryant’s passing.

A video released on Sunday shows James emerging from an airplane in tears. He could clearly be seen getting consoled by multiple people on his way through the airport.

Bryant’s death occurred several hours after James surpassed him on the NBA’s all-time scoring list.

The final tweet Bryant sent out before his death was directed at James.

“Continuing to move the game forward @KingJames. Much respect my brother,” he wrote.

Bryant and James played against one another for many years before eventually uniting to lead Team USA to an Olympic gold medal.
