Kevin Love reflected on the life and the legacy of the late LA Lakers and NBA legend, Kobe Bryant.

“He’s just so much more than a basketball player to many. He transcended the sport, he transcended the game, and he’s an icon.

He brought the game to where it is today, and for people that grew up with (Michael) Jordan, he was the next phase. He was 2.0,” Love said, via Kelsey Russo of The Athletic.

Bryant and his daughter Gianna died in a helicopter crash in California on Sunday.
