Spurs Sports & Entertainment CEO RC Buford today released the following statement on behalf of the Spurs organization on the death of Kobe Bryant:
“Kobe inspired all of us. In San Antonio, we were blessed to have enjoyed a front row seat to his greatness. He had an unmatched combination of determination, skill, competitiveness, personality, grace, passion and intelligence. The loss of Kobe and Gianna leaves a giant hole in our hearts. It’s impossible to express the pain we feel for Vanessa and the Bryant family.”
Bryant, 41, his 13-year-old daughter, Gianna, and seven others died in a helicopter accident on Sunday in Calabasas, California.
