Kobe Bryant: Breanna Stewart mourns death of NBA legend

Breanna Stewart was sitting in the hallway of her hotel, looking at her phone, completely shocked. “This can’t be true. This can’t be true,” she repeated. The best women’s basketball player in the world was getting blown up with texts from family and friends: “Did you see what happened with Kobe?” She hadn’t. Then she checked Twitter.

“We just got hit with a bomb,” Stewart says. “I can’t believe it.”

Kobe Bryant was killed in Calabasas, Calif., on Sunday morning when the helicopter he was in crashed and caught on fire. The Los Angeles Lakers legend was 41 years old. His 13-year-old daughter, Gianna, a basketball superstar in the making, was also killed.
