This afternoon we learned of the tragic deaths of Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gigi, who both died in a helicopter crash while on their way to a basketball camp.
Many NBA players learned of Kobe’s death right before some of their games that had early tip off times on Sunday.
Rockets’ guard Austin Rivers was one of the players who learned about Kobe’s death as he was getting on the court to play a game vs the Nuggets and he was visibly shaken by the news.
Kobe’s former teammate Tyson Chandler was also emotional on the bench during the game.
The NBA should have probably cancelled all games today to allow players to grieve in private.
