Presenter Felipe Andreoli was one of the artists who used social media to mourn the tragedy and took the opportunity to recall the meeting he had with him.
“As I remember that day. I had the honor of dining with this legend, my idol in basketball. Nike made this meeting between our basketball players (Oscar, Varejao, Leandrinho …) and invited me. I will never forget”, he started.
Then, Andreoli revealed that he came to present the star at the meeting: “At the time we were still listening to CDs and I took some RAP as a gift for him. Including the one in Pavilion 9 that is in his hand. Almost all of my basketball jerseys are his. And I will pass this love on to the family … ”
Felipe then finished: “Today it reminded me of the death of Rush drummer Neil Peart. My phone started popping up messages. Everyone knows how much I am a Kobe fan.
Now Kobe Bryant will star in the sky. It will be because it was already here. It will continue to shine as on the court. Always reminding us of how magical and incredible he was on the court and on this planet. Rest in Power, Black Mamba. ”
