All basketball lovers around the world are missing the late great Kobe Bryant, including Jeanie Buss.

The Los Angeles Lakers governor penned down a touching tweet recently to express his sorrow and acknowledgment of Bryant’s appreciation towards collective success.

She further referred to the Black Mamba as the “greatest Laker ever.”

Playing 19 years professionally in the NBA, Bryant cemented himself as one of the all-time greats in the game. He was named the 2008 league MVP and has aided the Lakers to win five championships in the whole 2000s decade.

Together with his daughter, Gianna, and seven other close associates, he died in an unexpected helicopter crash in Calabasas, California on January 26th, 2020.
