Statement from Ted Leonsis on the Passing of Kobe Bryant

I am devastated to hear the news today on the passing of NBA legend Kobe Bryant. – We have not only lost one of the greatest all-time basketball players in NBA history, we’ve also lost a tremendous human being – The G.O.A.T. – He was a loving husband, devoted father and caring son – He was a great ambassador for the game of basketball, an influential figure throughout the business world, as well as an active participant in his community – He’s impacted the lives of so many both on-and-off the court. His legacy will continue to live on through the many people he touched and influenced throughout his life of basketball and beyond. May he rest in peace.
