Here’s a compilation of reactions by NBA players to the death of Kobe Bryant. As you surely know by now, Bryant died in a helicopter wreck Sunday near Los Angeles and it has had a profound effect in the NBA and beyond.

So here’s what Zion Williamson, Brandon Ingram, Damian Lillard, Carmelo Anthony, Kawhi Leonard and Trae Young, among others, had to say about the late Kobe Bryant.

Zion had this to say: “I had both jerseys 8 and 24 growing up, I studied his footwork game because I respected his. His footwork was such a big part of his game, allowed him to get to his spots. The fade away … as easy as it looked, as he makes it look, it’s one of the hardest things to do.”
