Kobe Bryant tragically passed away last night; on Wednesday evening at San Siro, Milan and Torino will pay their respects to the legend.
The world was shocked last night when news broke about the passing of Basketball legend and icon Kobe Bryant.
Bryant, his 13-year-old daughter Gianna and seven other people were involved in a helicopter crash which ended in the tragic death of all nine people.
The world is mourning the death of Bryant, who will forever be considered one of the greatest Basketball players of all time – both for his incredible abilities on the court and for his charisma and personality which made Kobe a household name around the globe.
In addition to being an unbelievable player, Kobe was also a huge Milan fan. “My favourite football team? I’ve always been a Milan fan, I’ve got Rossoneri blood,” he told Univision Deportes in an interview in February 2019. “I’ve been following them since I was a kid. It’s no coincidence then that my favourite footballer is Van Basten, I loved him when he was a part of the Rossoneri attack. Great players like Maldini, Gullit, Rijkaard and Baresi were also all in that team.”
Tomorrow, before the Coppa Italia game between Milan and Torino at San Siro, a minute’s silence will be held to honor and remember a true great, an icon, a legendary figure; Mamba Out.
